DS Containers Expands Production Lines
Using the technology from Japan’s Daiwa Can, the plant in Batavia, IL has added capacity to its original two product lines 211x604 (66x178) and 211x713 (66x218). As of 2011, a third and fourth line now produce original sizes and two new sizes: 205x604 (58x168) and 205x710 (58x203). The additional lines have increased its capacity from the original 350 million cans a year to about 700 million.
The firm’s modern, sustainable can has created a new look for many aerosol companies. The domed top accentuates the modern look; the elimination of a side seam prevents leakage; and the polymer-coated steel provides a BPA-free and highly corrosion resistant environment.
The Batavia plant uses modern technology and production practices. It is a joint venture between Daiwa Can Company and the late William Smith, Sr., to offer aerosol companies in the US an alternative to the three-piece tinplated steel and aluminum cans. DS Containers uses laminated polyester-coated tin free steel in a draw-redraw process. The polymer coating eliminates the need for linings and coatings, reducing hazardous wastes. The finished containers are lightweight and 100% recyclable.
