Customised Features

Like no other packaging, the paperboard can is able to provide almost unparalleled flexibility in sizes, materials and other features to satisfy both customer and consumer needs.

Sonoco is your one-stop shop for a total packaging solution. We can design and create all of your package components, including the container, ends, labels and graphics. Plus, we can provide turn-key project management and packaging services.

Customised Construction

Customers depend on Sonoco’s diverse packaging expertise to create innovative components, such as unique valve, barrier and ink solutions, to help reduce costs and add sustainability advantages while building market share. We deliver some of the most advanced spiral winding tube lines specifically designed for the exacting standards demanded by our global customers.

Shaped Packaging

Oval-shaped composite rigid paperboard cans from Sonoco offered through our Weidenhammer acquisition provide a unique shape that attracts attention at the point of sale and clearly differentiates the product from competitors. In addition to standing out on the shelf, they offer all the benefits of composite cans, including maximum consumer convenience, re-sealability and excellent product protection. 

The OvalCan is a perfect package for instant beverages, snacks, and other moisture-sensitive products, since a high-quality freshness seal and overcap ensure product freshness long after the first opening. It also offers a variety of options for promotional activities.

The application of non-round technology allows us to produce square and rectangular packaging as well.  The different shapes can be more ergonomic and make for an easy dispensing and handling experience for the consumer. Hinge or plug lids further enhance the attractiveness of the package.  Furthermore, there are supply chain advantages with a rectangular nonround packaging solution.

Luxury tubes

Exclusive products demand an exceptional presentation to instantly set them apart. That's why Sonoco offers luxury tubes --premium quality containers for selected wines, champagne or aged whiskies. Sonoco luxury tubes are ideal for premium products, including:

  • Distilled spirits
  • Wine & champagne
  • Cosmetics
  • Perfume
  • Promotional products

Ends and Closures

Enhance your package with an easy-open end (EZO) or closure from Sonoco’s comprehensive line of steel, aluminum and peelable membrane opening solutions. Our ends keep out unwanted oxygen, moisture and aroma. They can be printed or embossed to further enhance your image. 

Additionally, you might be interested in our Blema paper bottom, a low-cost alternative to the standard metal bottom with a clean, seamless appearance.

Recessed Membrane Technology

Our recessed membrane technology offers improved sealing for product protection and an easy-open and resealable container for an enhanced consumer experience. The aluminum closure with tear-out membrane and pull tab minimise risk of tearing off the tab. Easier opening and tighter reclose, plus an audible click to help the consumer know that the package has been closed tightly, provide a smooth customer experience. 

Labeling

First impressions are everything. We offer a wide range of label options to give your product a competitive edge on crowded store shelves. Tin cans limit your creativity in package design. Because there are no ribs, our cans’ smooth surface provides superior billboarding for premium images. With our unsurpassed graphics management capabilities, we can provide a package with shelf appeal second to none.

Labels for paperboard containers can be oriented in a convolute or spiral format based on your brand requirements.
