Showa Aluminum Can Corporation Opens Second Factory in Vietnam

June 11, 2018

Shinagawa, Tokyo, based Showa Aluminum Can Corporation (SAC), just completed construction of a new factory for its subsidiary Hanacans in Da Nang City, Quang Nam Province in mid-Vietnam.

Showa Aluminum Can Corporation (SAC) is a subsidiary of Showa Denko of Japan.

The new factory was formally opened during a completion ceremony on June 8.

The new Hanacans factory is its second production base in Vietnam, with an annual production capacity of 700 million aluminum can bodies. To increase the overall capacity of its lines, Hanacans is working towards the production of can ends at its factory in Bach Nin Province, suburban Hanoi. When work is finished in October, total capacity of the two factories, for can bodies and can ends, will reach 2 billion cans a year.

Since its acquisition of Hanacans JSC in May 2014, SAC has introduced its leading-edge production technologies and quality control system, successfully increasing sales throughout the northern part of the country. SAC hopes to achieve further increases in sales in mid-Vietnam through its efforts to make Hanacans' new production line the finest in the region, offering superior products and answering the needs of the market.
