Maui Brewing Co. reports that it's the first brewery to use PakTech (www.paktech-opi.com) can top rings. Company founder and owner Garrett Marrero says the rings are more cost-effective than the paperboard cartons and wraps previously tried by the company. Maui says it can fit six times as many rings in a single pallet position as boxes and twice as many as wraps. The company also says that the rings work better in high-humidity environments. “Due to humidity in open coolers, the wraps would break and cause a bunch of headaches,” Marrero explains. The rings protect the can tops, offer integrated handles and create a space for UPC labeling. Maui now uses the rings to package all of its beer.
