CAPture Your Customer’s Attention

In the beverage industry it is becoming increasingly difficult to stand out in a sea of glass, plastic, and aluminum containers.

The packaging of these beverages represents an opportunity to create a new brand image for many products, and what has proven to provide the most benefits in getting these brands noticed?….. Aluminum Cans!

According to a study done by the Can Manufacturers Institute consumers chose aluminum containers as their top choice based on their convenience, flexibility and innovation.

At DSG we strive to enhance the drinking experience with our resealable Cap Can by providing consumers with that convenience, flexibility and innovation. Your beverage in the DSG Cap Can® will stand out on the shelves because of its unique look and features; it will also allow for marketing and brand image advantages with the 360°graphics canvas.

With aluminum cans already being the consumer’s number one choice, why not make it even better with the DSG Cap Can?

What Will Cans Be Like in 100 Years

What Will Cans Be Like in 100 years?

The humble can’s history began in 1795 when Napoleon offered a handsome sum of money to the person who could invent a way to preserve food for his Army and Navy. Almost 250 years later 1957, aluminum was introduced into can form for beverages. Then, in 1959, an innovative man from Dayton, Ohio created the first all-aluminum easy-open beer can which still proves its popularity today for drinks of all kinds.

Dayton Systems Group continues with the aluminum can innovation by finding new ways for consumers to enjoy their beverages from cans with their latest Cap Can. The Cap Can shows the future for all beverage cans. With the Cap Can, you can:
