Since its establishment in 1992, a dynamic investment culture has turned Can-Pack into one of the fastest-growing canmakers in the world. The Polish company has continued to open up new plants on a regular basis, with the Netherlands its latest destination.
Production of beverage cans has started on a second line at Can-Pack SA’s newly-built plant in The Netherlands. That’s just five months after the first line started up at Helmond near Eindhoven and doubles capacity to two billion cans a year. The plant has been engineered by US-based Roeslein & Associates with the building being completed in October 2016.
Roeslein opened the Shanghai location in 2011 with the purpose of supporting several canmaking facilities in the surrounding areas. Now, seven years later, Roeslein has the capacity to take on the full scope of canmaking projects and has grown its workforce by adding local engineers, marketing, and project management positions.
Shanghai’s level of expertise and experience has paralleled this growth making it home to several new major projects including the design-build of Greenfield can plants in Qingdao, China and H.C.M.C., Vietnam.
