WE’VE GOT THE EQUIPMENT, EXPERTISE AND SUPPLIES TO BRING THE CANNING REVOLUTION TO THOSE WHO NEVER DREAMED IT POSSIBLE, AND OUR GOAL WITH EVERY PARTNER IS TO MAKE THEIR FORAY INTO THE FUTURE OF BEER AS SMOOTH AS POSSIBLE.
Why Mobile Canning?
For most breweries, the question of if they want to offer cans has already been answered; they simply need to figure out how to do it. At the onset of this decision, breweries face major financial and logistical obstacles. NorthStar Mobile Canning eliminates these hurdles and delivers the machinery, labor, materials, and expertise to achieve professional, production canning.
Cost Savings The Challenge: Simple canning lines with minimal production abilities will cost a brewery at least $100,000, with higher production systems costing well over $500,000.
The NMC Solution: We bring everything with us! Using our service, breweries can save their capital for fermentation tanks and expansion, as opposed to devoting resources toward expensive packaging equipment that is not used on daily basis.
No Operational Headaches The Challenge: In-house packaging systems require more staff, more training, more management resources, and more hassle. They also take up precious brewery floor space and are notorious for requiring long hours of maintenance and high repair costs.
The NMC Solution: NorthStar Mobile Canning handles all of that. Plus, we bring the experience and know-how required for a smooth day of canning with minimal product loss
Easier Market Expansion The Challenge: Many breweries are limited to keg sales and growler fills in their tap room, while others are unable to expand past bottles, leaving breweries with unused, excess capacity.
The NMC Solution: NorthStar Mobile Canning opens the door for breweries of all sizes to utilize their excess capacity. Smaller breweries can move beyond kegs, while breweries already offering bottles are able to reach new retailers and consumers.
Lower Supplier Minimums The Challenge: A minimum order of cans will cost a brewery close to $15,000, and that’s not even including the ends (tops), six-pack holders, and case trays; each of which have their own massive minimums.
The NMC Solution: Using our packaging supply options, we’re able to help breweries source small-batches of shrink sleeve-labeled cans and other packaging materials for each beer label they’d like to can at a competitive price.
Emergency Canning/Consulting: If your in house canning line isn't working properly you are losing money and missing deadlines.
The NMC Solution: Knowing your canning line is very important, I can help get it back up and running. Worst case scenario we bring our line into your facility to meet your deadlines and get you back on schedule.
Superior quality control A primary advantage of using NMC is superior quality control procedures and equipment. An extensive prefill checklist ensures the proper equipment and supplies arrive on time to maximize efficiency. We use ATP testing to ensure quality fills free of contamination. Our CIP/SIP process is performed on sight before and after each fill. Random samples are taken to ensure seam quality. Finally we use a DO tester to ensure DO levels are within tolerance levels. Bottom line is you are the customer and you are able to oversee the entire process to ensure it meets your high quality standards.
