Who are we
Old Dominion Mobile Canning (ODMC) was founded by Mike Horn of Glen Allen, Virginia in September of 2012. While researching breweries and working on his business plan for a brewery Mike came across a unique opportunity, one that met his need to be part of the growing craft beer scene and provided a unique service that would take him to breweries across the mid-Atlantic. So what started as a brewery in 2012, soon became the first mobile canning operation east of the Mississippi. ODMC took delivery of one of the earliest Wild Goose MC-250m Mobile Canning machines and opened for business in March of 2013 at the Craft Brewers Conference held in Washington DC.
With one canning line named "MC Canner" and its first two customers, Wild Wolf Brewing and Devils Backbone, ODMC took to the roadways of Virginia to bring the mobile canning revolution east. In a mere 12 months the demand for mobile canning across Virginia and North Carolina sky-rocketed which allowed us to acquire our second canning line, aptly named "Candice", in the late summer of 2014.
As we celebrate our second anniversary we not only reflect on the over 3 million cans filled to date, but also our commitment to the craft breweries that we serve. It is our mission to foster the growth of Craft Beer in the region, to be true partner with our customers, and to continue to improve the quality and value of our services. Our mission is more than words on paper, but demonstrated in our actions.
What We Do
Old Dominion Mobile Canning comes to you when you need us. Whether your brewhouse is 3 barrels or 30 barrels, our turnkey service allows breweries to focus on what they do best, brew great beer. Not only can we fill both 12 and 16 oz cans, but was can also provide you with all the materials you need including cans, lids, 6 and 4 pack holders, and case trays.
On canning day we arrive on-time, setup our equipment, perform cleaning and sanitation procedures, perform a can seam test, and them start to dial in and process your beer. Canning proceeds at a rate of 6 to 7 barrels per hour. Upon completion we clean our equipment and your space, pack up the truck, and are on our way. Leaving you with perfectly packaged canned beer.
For breweries that do not wish to purchase large quantities of preprinted cans, ODMC offers a shrink sleeve option for cans with a minimum as low as 3000 cans. If you don’t have room to store the cans, we can do that for you and bring them with us on canning day.
