Showa Denko to start producing sleek cans in Vietnam

5:28 AM, 13th December 2016

TOKYO, JAPAN: Showa Aluminum Can Corporation (SAC), a wholly owned consolidated subsidiary of Showa Denko K K (SDK) said that it will start to produce sleek cans for beverages in Vietnam.

Sleek cans have smaller diameters and taller heights than those of regular cans. They are adopted by beverage makers all over the world due to their appealing designs. In Southeast Asia, some foreign affiliated beverage companies in Thailand and Vietnam have started to substitute sleek cans for regular cans, to use them mainly as containers for carbonated beverages.

In May 2014, SDK and SAC completed the procedures for jointly acquiring 91.75 percent of shares in Hanacans Joint Stock Company (Hanacans), a manufacturer of aluminium beverage cans in Vietnam, and made that company a subsidiary of SAC.

Since then, by introducing SAC’s advanced manufacturing technology and latest quality management system into Hanacans and expanding the capacity of Hanacans’ can end production lines, SAC has successfully increased Hanacans’ sales of cans for beer in Vietnamese market where demand for canned beer continues increasing.

This time, in order to further expand Hanacans’ business, SAC judged it is necessary for Hanacans to cultivate new clients who mainly produce soft drinks. Thus, SAC has made Hanacans establish new production system that can interchange production of regular cans with that of sleek cans.

Aluminium can market of Vietnam has been expanding about 10 percent every year, as a result of population growth and the rise in the standard of living. The Showa Denko Group aims to continuously expand its aluminium beverage can business in Vietnam through stable and speedy supply of products that meet needs of the market.
