Trade group Aluminium Stewardship Initiative welcomed Poland’s aluminium can producer CANPACK S.A. into the fold last week as an Industrial User member, becoming ASI’s 178th member organization.
The firm is the main entity of CANPACK Group which is in turn a subsidiary of Giorgi Global Holdings Inc. The company was founded in Krakow in 1992, with first production of aluminium cans coming two years later at CANPACK’s plant in Brzesko.
In addition to aluminium beverage cans, CANPACK also supplies high-quality glass, metal closures, and food and industrial packaging to buyers around the globe.
John O’Maoileoin, Group Sustainability Director, CANPACK S.A., said in a press release that his firm looks forward to collaborating with other member companies on issues relating to aluminium sustainability.
“As one of the world’s leading aluminium can manufacturers with a truly global footprint, we are delighted to join ASI. Working together, alongside other members, we believe that by joining ASI CANPACK will be able to play its full part in further improving the production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium.”
The ASI is a worldwide organization dedicated to setting industrial standards and certifications in the aluminium industry. The association attempts to bring together the various stakeholders in the aluminium industry in order to achieve objectives including sustainable production methods, material chain-of-custody procedures, recycling, social impacts related to aluminium production, and production standards.
