‘March Madness’ usually refers to the NCAA Basketball tournament in the USA, however over at Canmaking News ‘March Madness’ seems to refer to the extraordinary amount of news and updates that we are being sent by our readers and sponsors. February was a record month for news and it looks like this month will be no exception. We will keep on zooming ahead!
In our latest issue of Canmaking News, features writer Karen Mckenzie has written an article that examines counterfeiting in the metal packaging industry.

Karen’s article, ‘Fighting fakes in the metal packaging industry’ is a must read.

The results are in!
With many companies reporting on full year results for 2020, we were pleased to see that you remain hopeful for the future. As vaccine rollouts continue all over the world, we seem to have a better idea of when things will return to normal and no, not the new normal! Whilst 2020 was undoubtedly a difficult year, the industry stepped up, innovating in the way that our industry only knows how and ultimately ending the year on a high. We can’t wait to see what 2021 brings and we’re so privileged to be a part of it.
Anheuser Busch, Can’d Aid, Canned Water 4kids and INX are just some of the firms that have volunteered to send safe drinking water to Texas to help those affected by the terrible storms in the state, a perfect example of why partnerships in our industry are so important. As relief efforts continue, it’s heartening to see so many of our friends supporting the cause.
Spring is nearly upon us and this is certainly one of my favourite seasons. We hope it is yours and that the sun shines and spreads its welcomed warmth to you, our neighbours.
