DS Containers, a Japanese-American partnership, recently celebrated the grand opening of its Batavia, Illinois plant. U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert and representatives of Daiwa—the company’s Japanese partner, which invested $100 million to the operation—were on hand as the company fired up its assembly lines in Batavia, Illinois. The 236,000 square-foot facility has the capability to produce approximately 30,000 hourly.

DS Containers applies Daiwa’s polymer-coating technology to produce steel aerosol cans that address the limitations of steel and are suitable for personal care items. The polymer-coated steel that is applied as part of the coil-making process at Corus Packaging Plus in Europe combines the integrity of steel with the versatility and protective properties of plastic. Finished cans are scratch, corrosion and rust-resistant, eliminating the need for interior and exterior coatings that are used in conventional can-manufacturing.
