Best Booth of the Show at Cannex went to CarnaudMetalbox Engineering, Roeslein & Associates and Pride Conveyance.
The booth was a highlight of the show at the Colorado Convention Center by combining a pre-fabricated section of a beverage can production line, as would be delivered by Roeslein during the construction of a plant, with a pair of CarnaudMetalbox Engineering’s latest Reformat inside-spray machines and two types of feeding systems from Pride Conveyance.
The booth represents increasing collaboration between US-based project integrator Roeslein and UK-based canmaking equipment manufacturer CarnaudMetalbox Engineering.
For example, the most recently completed project is for Silgan Containers, in which a complete food can plant was built at Burlington, Iowa, last year, with the first cans produced some 10 months after Roeslein started civil engineering followed by the installation of three high-speed D&I steel can lines each featuring a number of 5000 series bodymakers supplied by CarnaudMetalbox Engineering.
Both Rudi Roeslein, chief executive of Roeslein & Associates, and Andrew Truelove, general manager of CarnaudMetalbox Engineering, said that they were proud to have received the award, which made the efforts of the teams all the more satisfying.
