Old Dominion Mobile Canning set to Expand
Old Dominion Mobile Canning, located in central Virginiaand serving breweries in Virginia and north-central North Carolina, today announces that it is preparing to double its canning capacity. As the first mobile canning solution in the eastern United States, Old Dominion Mobile Canning has experienced rapid acceptance and growth requiring the addition of a second “mobilized” Wild Goose Canning Technologies WGC-250 canning line.
“We have filled and sealed over a million cans for Virginia and North Carolina craft breweries since launching our operation in April 2013, and expect to fill over two million cans in 2014” said Michael Horn, Old Dominion Mobile Canning Founder and Managing Director. “Production requirements from existing customers has our original mobile canning line operating at full capacity and the demand from additional breweries for mobile canning services is requiring us to deploy a second line as soon as possible,” added Horn.
Presently, Old Dominion Mobile Canning services 8 breweries with 16 craft beer labels and expects the number of customers to increase to 15 and craft beer labels to 34 during 2014. “This growth is proof-positive of our business model and the growing acceptance and movement to cans in the craft beer industry” said Mr. Horn.
Michael Horn, owner of Old Dominion Mobile Canning, explains the concept; "Mobile Canning provides an on-demand, hassle-free packaging option for Craft Brewers. With our service, the brewery does not have to outlay precious capital to purchase its own canning line, dedicate scarce facility space, or train and pay for additional labor to run and maintain a new piece of equipment. Our turn-key operation can fill 12 or 16 ounce cans in quantities that allow craft breweries to extend the distribution of their product, generating new revenue and market presence. We strongly believe that premium craft beer deserves a premium package and that the aluminum can is that package."
Old Dominion Mobile Canning is affiliated with Colorado based MobileCanningSystemsTM, the pioneer in introducing Mobile Canning to the craft brewing industry. Through this affiliation we are able to leverage a proven operating model and the benefits of comprehensive training, shared knowledge and best practices, to provide superior service to our clients. The MobileCanningSystems Affiliate Program also provides us with access to volume purchasing discounts for cans, labels and other production supplies. "Our goal is to become an extension of the brewery, the can is the last thing the beer touches before it gets into the craft beer drinkers glass, it has to be perfect," said Michael.
