CanTech Grand Tour 2019 took place in Istanbul, Turkey. And with it came the Global Can Supplier Award!
ArcelorMittal was present at the yearly conference, assembling technical experts from global suppliers and their customers from all over the globe. Attending CanTech gives you access to all the latest innovations and trends in terms of production technologies within the packaging industry.
Apart from being a great opportunity for networking and listening to the high-level conferences, there is one key moment during the fair that was long awaited by all the participants: the Global Can Supplier Awards.
An award that celebrates excellence
The ceremony took place on the 2nd evening of the conference (March 26th) and the highlight of the evening has been the Supplier Innovation Awards. It is the opportunity for the suppliers to present their most innovative product or equipment, and is a way to celebrate excellence within the can making industry.
In 2019, ArcelorMittal’s entry was all about our lighter and greener steel for aerosols. Thanks to our two latest steel grades TH650N and TS550, which allow amazing thickness reduction for tops/bottoms and body, whilst maintaining steel hardness and offering excellent formability. Strong and sustainable, that is what our steel is!
