Rexam has teamed up with WeCan Solutions to produce aluminium cans for the first ever mobile canning facility in the UK, one of only a handful in Europe. The pioneering service, backed by Rexam, offers onsite canning solutions for craft brewers and smaller beverage brands with a minimum filling run of 5,000 cans per day.

The collaboration sees Rexam providing 330ml (33cl) size cans in a range of formats, including unprinted, one-colour printed and bespoke designs, on demand. In addition, WeCan Solutions offers the application of pressure sensitive labels (PSL) for onsite filling.

The partnership highlights both companies’ dedication to helping craft brewers recognise the benefits of cans as an alternative packaging format, whilst reducing investment costs on filling lines and transportation.

Rogier Keukens, UK Sales Manager for Rexam, says: “WeCan Solutions’ focus on craft beer is exciting for Rexam and we have also identified this as a growing segment throughout the UK and Europe, a trend which we expect to continue for years to come. Rexam admires WeCan Solutions’ innovative offering for craft brewers and we look forward to continuing our collaboration. Rexam aims to grow the market through innovative, bespoke products and services for WeCan Solutions, their customers and other craft brewers who are looking to can their beers.”

WeCan Solutions’ canning system is available to small craft brewers, ciders and non-alcoholic beverages and currently services over 50 craft brewers across over 40 brands.
