The can making industry is expanding at an unprecedented rate. Many legacy can plants are being modernized with new technology, faster equipment, and can size change flexibility to meet the future market demands of 2-piece aluminum cans. Conversely, the supply of experienced canmaking personnel and knowledgeable maintainers is not keeping pace with the rapid expansion of the market.
The installation, start-up, and commissioning of a new greenfield can line was completed by Hanacans, Roeslein, Carnaud Metalbox Engineering, Stolle Corporation, and other valuable mainstream suppliers. It required a relationship of sincere trust, steadfast dedication, and tireless efforts to make this project a success from 10,000 miles away without active participation on site. All those involved were on board as a collaborative group to work through the difficulties COVID-19 presented, which affected travel and immigration restrictions in all parts of the globe.
As Roeslein celebrates its 30th anniversary, they are pleased to announce the opening of their new engineering and manufacturing operations in the São Paulo region of Brazil. This location will be referred to as Roeslein Brazil and was incorporated in December of 2019.
Roeslein & Associates exhibited at Cannex & Fillex – The World Canmaking Congress in Denver, CO this May. Cannex & Fillex is a major international metal packaging showcase that allows companies to exchange information, discuss the newest industry developments, and explore new technology.
Roeslein & Associates recently attended, sponsored, and exhibited at this year’s Latamcan show, where Roeslein & Associates’ Director of Business Development, Ron Ragan, received the Lifetime Achievement Award. This award honors those who have made an extraordinary contribution to the can making industry.
For the canmaking industry, as well as, Roeslein & Associates it has been a year of growth and innovation. Roeslein’s Vice Chairman Dave May and Systems Engineering Director J.C. Harrison were able to speak on both subjects at the Canmaker Summit and Asia Cantech, two of the industry’s largest tradeshows.
