With numerous dedicated research and development facilities across Europe, we employ more than 100 scientists, researchers and designers who focus on product and process innovation. We are committed to pioneering new packaging products and manufacturing processes. Internationally recognised with over 100 innovation awards, Ardagh is truly shaping the future of metal packaging.
We are at the forefront of innovative production methods such as Draw and Wall Ironing (DWI), an advanced metal can-making process, which differs from traditional 3-piece manufacturing. With DWI, the body and base are formed together in one piece via extrusion, which offers tremendous potential for down-gauging, bringing both financial and environmental benefits.
