Consumer buying decisions are based on many factors; among these are product quality, convenience, cost and sustainability. With so many brands and products available in certain markets, many companies struggle to gain ­– or simply maintain – market share.

CCL Container is helping brands in several industries succeed in this challenging environment by offering exclusive, supersized packaging that many consumers want. Among the markets CCL Container serves in this capacity are automotive, home and garden, industrial and personal care.  Measuring up to 76 mm in diameter by 265 mm in height, CCL’s large-diameter aluminum containers are the only ones of this size produced in North America. This large size, coupled with stunning shaping and decorating options, ensures that all products – whether ­an automotive fuel additive, insect repellent or hairspray – make a big impression on consumers at the point of sale.

Creative designs further distinguish brands and influence consumer-buying decisions. Decoration capabilities include advanced lithography and decorating arrays, including top-to-bottom and full wraparound graphics in up to eight colors, metallics and neons. Specialty surface treatments, textures, embossing and debossing effects elevate overall appearance while building consumer appeal.

When it comes to functionality and performance, brands appreciate that potentially hazardous materials or chemicals in products are safely housed in these durable containers; consumers like that the packaging is lightweight, convenient and cost-efficient. In addition, the endless recyclability of these 100% virgin aluminum containers is a win-win for environmentally conscious brands and consumers alike.

Keeping It Clean: CCL’s Aluminum Containers Help Hand Sanitizer Brands Expand to Combat the Current Pandemic

Hand Sanitizer Packaging Manufacturer - CCL Container

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it should come as no surprise that the hand sanitizer market has skyrocketed. Hand sanitizers and complete sanitization stations can now be found far beyond their traditional use in medical and healthcare locations to more typical, everyday places – from large venues, schools, and houses of worship to small businesses and restaurants. The sales of personal hand sanitizers have also surged as consumers seek solutions well within reach to keep themselves safe.

With so many new products entering this highly commoditized market, hand sanitizer brands are aggressively exploring strategies to differentiate themselves at the point of sale. One solution to this challenge is CCL Container’s aluminum aerosol container, which safely houses these anti-bacterial formulas in style, offering distinctive shaping and decorating options.

Available in sizes ranging from 2 to 28 ounces, these containers can be designed to accommodate both spray and foam applications. For foaming formulas, CCL’s aerosol systems ensure that products maintain a rich texture, offering a clean and controlled dispense that eliminates waste. In many cases, custom specialty shapes allow the product container to fit into larger, touchless sanitization stations used for hands-free public use. CCL’s aerosol package forms are FDA compliant and formulation compatible, providing extended shelf life. Consumers are drawn to the high-end look and feel of aluminum containers, which are also highly recyclable and environmentally responsible. Some brands, including Paya, have leveraged aluminum’s lightweight durability to successfully sell – and ship – products in bulk through Amazon and other popular online retailers. These bulk shipping savings also benefit hand sanitizer brands that directly serve the medical industry.

Vitani® Delivers Professional-Grade Cocktail Experience in Bottles by CCL Container.

 

 

The Vitani® cocktail line was developed by Eric and Jackie Gichner when they noticed a gap in the premium beverage landscape. When frequenting their favorite bars and restaurants, Jackie’s go-to cocktail has always been a Dirty Martini. She rarely drank them at home, because she could never quite recreate that professional-grade taste or experience. After searching for at-home options, Eric and Jackie realized that nothing on the market existed for the true martini aficionado.

The Vitani line of premium cocktails was born and now includes four varieties: Dirty Martini, Elderpear Martini, Cosmo Martini, and the Vitani Mule. All are marketed in aluminum beverage bottles produced by CCL Container. Minimal graphics are used to fully depict the richness of the brushed aluminum surfaces, which lends to the upscale quality of the line. The sleek bullet-shaped containers are 53mm diameter and 155mm tall, holding 200ml, perfect for the standard-sized martini glass.

Silvadore Wine Essentials Introduces a New Twist on Wine Preservation in Aerosols by CCL Container

Sklvador Wine Image

 

Wine enthusiasts can save time, save money, and pour the wines they want when they want, without the worry of wasted product thanks to Silvadore Wine Essentials. Silvadore Wine Preserver is a unique aerosol-based wine preserver that simplifies the process of keeping wine fresh after opening. The product uses Argon gas as the preservation agent. By dispensing two sprays from the press-top actuator into the open wine bottle, the Argon gas sits on top of the remaining wine and functions as a barrier from oxygen. Argon gas is completely safe, and the remaining wine can be later consumed with original freshness for up to two weeks upon initial uncorking. The product represents a more convenient and cost-effective alternative to many of the wine preservation systems that often involve costly, bulky components.

The product is marketed in a contoured brushed aluminum aerosol produced by CCL Container, and holds .3 oz of Argon gas, enough for approximately 50 uses. The contoured neck allows for improved handling of the product, and the transportable aluminum construction makes this a great product for wine lovers on the go or in the great outdoors.

The Sandy Bottom® Cocktail Drink “Keeps Summer Alive” in Aluminum Bottles

Sandy Bottom Bottles Image

 

The inspiration for Sandy Bottom® Sparkling Rum Cocktails may be found along the Chesapeake Bay on a warm summer afternoon. Maryland-based entrepreneur and founder, Sandy Mezza, enjoyed serving a particular fizzy cocktail to friends that featured a coconut rum flavor. Her signature drink became so popular that she was encouraged to offer it to a broader audience. Sandy Bottom was born.

As the product grew in popularity, Sandy elected to reintroduce the brand in an aluminum beverage bottle manufactured by CCL Container. The bottle features a lug sleeve and re-closeable red cap, stands 155mm high and is 53mm in diameter, holding approximately 6.7 ounces, perfect for a single serve.

Sandy markets the product as an ideal alternative to beer and wine for boating, camping and other outdoor activities and celebrations. The rust-proof aluminum package is both lightweight and rugged, perfect for outdoor enjoyment. A 100% recyclable container, Sandy is also very proud of the fact that the bottle, ingredients, and components are also 100% made in the U.S.A., also subtly indicated by package graphics that use a clever-yet-simple negative space design in red, white, and blue.

CCL Container Introduces Eco-Friendly Reusable Aluminum Beverage Cup

Recyclable and Reusable: CCL Container’s New Aluminum Beverage Cup Appeals to Both Brands and Consumers.

(Hermitage, PA – March 2021) CCL Container, North America’s leading manufacturer of recyclable aluminum packaging, is expanding its eco-friendly product line to include a sustainable aluminum beverage cup. Dubbed “ReCup” for its “recyclable, refillable and reusable” properties, the cup is manufactured entirely from virgin aluminum, giving it valuable recycling potential.

“We are extremely excited to introduce the ReCup,” states Kimberly Kizer, Vice President of Sales for CCL Container. “As we near the end of the pandemic, we are seeing a returning focus on sustainability best practices, among both consumer brands and their retail partners. Package options that reduce landfill waste or eliminate one-time, throw-away packaging, are returning to the spotlight. Go to any gym, and you’ll see that most patrons have traded plastic throw-away bottles for refillable, reusable containers.”

The ReCup resonates with consumer brands and retailers that are intent on offering durable yet fully sustainable products and packaging solutions to customers. Produced by an impact extrusion process, the ReCup is a one-piece, seamless aluminum construction featuring a rim at the top (to which a variety of lid styles can be secured) and a mid-point contour that enhances grip-ability. The cups measure 59 mm in diameter by 155 mm in height and holds approximately 14 fluid ounces and can provide cups of all sizes.

Rustproof and water-resistant, the cups are ideal for consumers looking for an on-the-go sustainable beverage container for commuting, camping, sporting events, workouts, and travel. ReCups are also lightweight and stackable, saving space and reducing shipping costs for brands, while enabling easy portability for consumers, such as families, who may want to stack and travel with multiple containers.

CCL Container brings a broad array of decorating options to the ReCup container, enabling marketers to customize the package for various initiatives, including special marketing campaigns, promotions, or other brand-enhancing opportunities. Advanced lithography and decorating capabilities include top-to-bottom full wraparound graphics in up to eight colors, with process colors, metallics, neon, specialty surface treatments, textures and embossing.

“Similar to the consumer buying shift in which reusable aluminum drinking straws are replacing plastic, today’s consumers are seeking recyclable alternatives to plastic and other disposable cups that can’t be reused,” notes Kizer. “The ReCup creates an opportunity for brands to enhance their image with high-quality, visually appealing containers that also demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, while giving consumers the eco-friendly products that they increasingly want.”
