The new brand provides packers with a container alternative that will assist them in restaging or enhancing their product’s image without investing in new filling equipment. The new technology offers a metal alternative using shape and color. Shaped can production offers efficient, high-quality alternatives—in both aluminum and steel—to traditional metal. Both premium-niche and high-volume shaped cans provide product differentiation and enhanced functionality. Coupled with a complimentary color pallet Silgan’s shaped cans contemporize metal packaging and the products they contain.
