Can Stock Aluminium Rolled Products

The can stock market is one of the most demanding packaging markets and Hulamin’s products have stood the test of time.

Hulamin has supplied coated can end, bare and coated tab stock products to independent and multinational can-makers around the world for more than 30 years. The advent of the all-aluminium can in South Africa afforded Hulamin the opportunity to expand our can stock portfolio and enter the exciting can body stock market.

What sets Hulamin apart in this competitive supply segment are our close relationships, based on sound technical support, formed with our customers and supply chain partners.

As a responsible supplier, our expertise in recycling has accelerated since 2010 and we are well positioned to assist with environmental Life Cycle Cost analyses and used beverage can (UBC) recycling concepts and ideas.

These are the broad specifications of our products in the can stock sector.
