We recently saw a change of name for Nacanco Food & General Line Ltd to Pechiney Packaging Food & General Line. This results from the recent purchase of Nacanco's parent, American National Can, by the French Pechiney Group. Apart from being a major supplier of cans to the food industry, Nacanco, now Pechiney Packaging, last year supplied 60 per cent of the UK's tinplate cans for the paint and inks industry and almost 50 per cent of the total paint can volume if plastics containers are also included. The rest of the Company's general line business is in the manufacture of cans for the oil and specialist chemicals industries. In this report, based on recent visits to Pechiney Packaging's UK offices in Luton and the can manufacturing facility in Norwich, we also include details on the finishing methods used by Pechiney for tinplate cans.
