New England Breweries Get Their First Mobile Canning Service
Norwalk, Conn. ― High-performance, mobile canning wasn’t an option for breweries in the Northeast―until now. Iron Heart Canning Company, New England’s only mobile production canning service, has announced its official launch and will partner with Westfield River Brewing Company of Westfield, Mass., for its first canning run in early August.
“The response we’ve received from breweries has been really exciting” said Tyler Wille, Iron Heart’s founder and co-owner. “We’re eliminating many of the hurdles that keep new and established breweries out of cans, and we’re making it easier than ever for them to reach new consumers.”
When breweries can with Iron Heart, they bypass the expense and headache of buying and running their own line. On top of the upfront financial investment, an in-house system means spending time and money on maintenance, training staff, and devoting precious floor space to bulky equipment. As an on-demand, pay-as-you-go service, Iron Heart eliminates these hassles. It brings the canning line, the trained labor, and the expertise, in addition to helping breweries source small-batches of packaging supplies and warehousing pallets of cans for clients who are tight on space.
As an affiliate of MobileCanningSystems™ (MCS), Iron Heart’s equipment is at the cusp of canning innovation. Its mobile system was engineered by Wild Goose Canning Technologies to fit neatly inside of a box truck and has the ability to fill 40 cans per minute.
“We’re partnering with MCS to leverage their expertise and experience, so that we can provide our customers in New England with the highest quality service from day one,” Wille said. “The training and support they provide give us an edge. We have rigid cleaning, sanitation, quality control, and operational procedures. The brewery’s beer is our top priority. Their product, after all, is our product.”
