Showa Aluminum Can Corporation (SAC), a consolidated subsidiary of Showa Denko (SDK) (Tokyo: 4004), headquartered in Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo, completed construction of its subsidiary’s new factory to produce aluminum cans in Quang Nam Province, which is in the suburbs of Da Nang City in mid Vietnam, and had a ceremony for the completion of the new factory on June 8, 2018.

The new factory is Hanacans Joint Stock Company’s second production base in Vietnam, and its production line has annual production capacity of 700 million can bodies*. Hanacans, which is a Vietnamese subsidiary of SAC, is now also working to increase the capacity of the lines to produce can ends set at its factory in Bach Nin Province in the suburbs of Hanoi. When this work is finished in the coming October, Hanacans’ two factories’ total capacity to produce can bodies and can ends will be that for 2 billion cans a year.

Since its acquisition of Hanacans in May 2014, SAC has been introducing its leading-edge production technologies and quality control system into Hanacans, and successfully increasing Hanacans’ sales in Vietnam centering on northern part of the country. SAC will pursue further increase in its aluminum can sales in mid Vietnam through its effort to make Hanacans’ new aluminum can factory the one that quickly and timely offers the best quality products in the region which meet needs of the market.
