Ball Packaging Europe GmbH is one of the leading beverage can producers in Europe.
Twelve production plants situated in close proximity to clients in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Poland and Serbia ensure that the company has extensive presence both in the traditional core markets of western Europe and also in the significant growth regions of eastern and southern Europe.
The Can Makers was formed in September 1981, as the body representing the UK manufacturers of beer and carbonated soft drinks cans. The organisation now consists of three can manufacturers: Crown Bevcan UK, Ball Packaging Europe and Rexam Beverage Can who supply the UK market, together with their raw material suppliers: Alcan Rhenalu, Corus Packaging, Hydro Aluminium, Darex UK, AzkoNobel and Valspar. AMG/Shardal Castings, the specialist detinning company and the multi-pack suppliers ITW Hi-Cone are also members.
BCME (Beverage Can Makers Europe) is a non-profit-making trade body that represents Europe's leading drinks can manufacturers. Our goal is to maximise market opportunities for the beverage can and proactively position and support the positive attributes and image of the can relative to other beverage packaging alternatives through coordinated marketing, environmental, legislative and technical initiatives.
Our activities include:
Communicating the can's benefits as a drinks package to fillers, retailers and consumers across Europe in a consistent and dynamic way
Commissioning and distributing research demonstrating the can's advantages
Monitoring the beverage can's environmental performance and supporting recycling programmes
Coordinating with policymakers and stakeholders for the benefit of our members
Ensuring members' compliance with technical and legal standards
