We work with can manufacturers, machinery manufacturers and packaging engineers in a variety of capacities.

Our History

Henry C. Bachmann (Hank) founded Dayton Systems Group in 1993 when he had an idea for a reclosable can.  He brought with him the experience of a full career in the metal container industry. His vision to create a machine to make a practical resealable closure for the beverage and food markets globally brought Cap Can® into commercial production. Today, DSG employees represent hundreds of years of engineering and tooling knowledge in the global can making industry.

Dayton Systems Group continues to provide expertise through innovative design and manufacturing services supporting the industry.  The second generation of Henry’s family now leads the company to bring new product development and equipment to a worldwide market.
