Having dusted off the cobwebs from what seems to have been the shortest Christmas break ever we’re facing an extremely exciting 2016.
2015 flew by thanks to the 1.1 million new craft cans that WeCan Solutions filled, the 40,000 miles travelled, 100+ breweries and well over 100 new craft beer brands into can.
We often repeat that small scale contract canning is not easy as others have found, but one thing for sure is that experience solves the challenges along the way. We’re confident we’ll always have the best quality, processes, commercials and I guarantee NO ONE will match our enthusiasm and passion !!
We’ve had some great feedback whether its been about the low levels of DO, seam quality or quality of service in general. Of course, we have the cynics and we respect their views.
2016 is shaping up to be an exciting time and theres an awful lot going on.
Ireland – We’re spreading our wings and have a new unit which will be dedicated to Irish brewers.
Europe – More to come on this in the next few weeks, but we’ll be announcing something similar there to.
Contract Brewing – WeCan Solutions Ltd have formed an association with Wobberly Welder Brewery in Hereford where we can not only condition ‘rough’ beer but provide a full contract brew service before putting to keg, cask, bottle and of course cans. We welcome small batches using our 3 barrel plant or something larger on our 40 barrel brewery.
New Lines – We have two more lines on there way which will increase our daily capacity considerably. One of these will be located in Northern England to ensure that we have even greater flexibility.
Niro-dosing – expensive but very effective. Its great at making sure of the cascade pour for stouts !
CraftCan.Directory – We’ve promised this for a while but its been frustratingly slow. Essentially, we can offer the freshest beers from the widest range of breweries putting product into can. Through our unique relationship we reduce transport costs to a minimum. A Beer Shop, Beer Club and personalised labels will provide the very best online service in the UK for Craft Canned Beers. We’ll go live by the end of next week.
New Website – Always nice to refresh but with lots of added features such as a member section which will assist the booking and processing procedures.
Commercials – simply put we will not be beaten. More capacity means better prices with the same quality. Find a better like for like quote anywhere else and we will beat it.
Wholesale – We’re finding more and more retailers getting in contact with them to supply them with the widest range of craft beer in cans. They can be confident that we can get product to them in the quickest time. Brewery fresh with no hanging around in the warehouse.
We’ll keep you up to date with a load more goings on in the next few weeks !!
