We hope that April’s comment finds you well and sane. As we’re constantly being told, these are unprecedented times, it’s heartening to see how the industry has come together for each other and their communities, providing support and resources for those most in need. Please do keep sending us your news, we could all need a pick me up every so often and hearing about your charitable endeavours is the perfect medicine.

April is spelt Aprilis in the Roman calendar, meaning ‘to open’. In ancient times, many festivals were planned for April and although many sporting and music events have been cancelled this side of the pond, the metal packaging market will certainly remain open.

In the meantime, freelance writer, Karen McKenzie has written this month’s feature, ‘Your Industry Needs You’. Have a read and let us know your views. We think it’s spot on. With travel limited, communication can continue by using all forms of media available to you.

You are essential!

We’ve been speaking to a few of our friends in the industry and one word that came up and keeps coming up, is ‘essential’. You are all essential and we, as your number one online news source for the industry are also essential.  We have many options available to help keep your business progressing.

Let’s keep metal packaging rocking!  To help we have created a ‘Supplier’s Message Centre’ for you to post your updates and Canmaking News is now free to view for three months.

Keep sending in your news and views…our weekly news alert will continue to spread the word.

In the meantime, keep safe and healthy!
