Showa Aluminum Can Builds Integrated Production System in Vietnam
SAC Starts Commercial Operation of New Can End Production Lines

TOKYO, Oct 30, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - Showa Aluminum Can Corporation (SAC), a consolidated subsidiary of Showa Denko (SDK) (TOKYO: 4004), completed construction of can end production lines in Vietnam, and went into quantity production of can ends this October.

In May 2014, SAC acquired controlling stake of Hanacans Joint Stock Company (Hanacans), an aluminum beverage can manufacturer of Vietnam. Since then, by introducing SAC's advanced manufacturing technology and latest quality management system into Hanacans, SAC has successfully increased Hanacans' sales in Vietnamese market where demand for canned beer continues increasing.

In the past, Hanacans did not have the line to produce can ends, and outsourced them. Therefore, Hanacans started to set up new can end production facilities in October 2014. Moreover, in August 2015, Hanacans was successfully certified that it meets FSSC 22000, which is an international standard for food safety management system. This time, through the establishment of the integrated system to produce cans and can ends, Hanacans will achieve further quality improvement and stable production in its whole product lines.

The demand for canned beer in Vietnam increases about 10% every year, as a result of the rise in the standard of living. The Showa Denko Group aims to expand its aluminum beverage can business in Vietnam through stable and speedy supply of products that meet customers' requirement for quality.
