Early last week, the Bevcraft Group completed the acquisition of mobile canning business Them That Can, which will bring significant service level improvements to the UK craft drinks market, including coverage and improved market capacity.
The mobile fleet, equipment and associated crews from Them That Can will join Bevcraft’s UK division with the expanded offering operating as Craft Canning UK.
In recent years, Bevcraft has developed Europe’s most extensive integrated craft can supply chain with mobile canning, distribution and decorating facilities at sites in Ireland, the UK and the Netherlands. Low.
These are complemented by laboratory, technical support and line maintenance centers. Bevcraft recently commissioned Europe’s first-ever Tonejet digital printing plant at its Peterborough site, which offers an environmentally sustainable, cost-effective and versatile decorating option for cans, with no minimum order restrictions.
