Metpack Reigns 2014

Chloe Wiggett-Scott

The triennial event Metpack, has stamped the World’s Metal Packaging Industry once again. Metpack in 2014 was anticipated to be a bigger show than ever before and naturally it came through. The weeklong event proved to be consistent and well worth the three year wait. Exhibitors displaying at Metpack – large and small, brought forward their new and innovative products for all to see. It is a great time to see where the metal packing industry is heading.

The Versatile Technology crew had a great week! For Jean, Tim and I, it was our first time attending Metpack, well for Tim it was his first time attending with VT. We had the lovely Gerard and Anne attend the show for three days before they travelled to the Deutsches Panzermuseum in Munster, where the Wimmera Tiger was offered to stay for the International Military Model Visit. It was a busy week for the five of us!

Versatile Technology displayed the MP44 Automatic Back End Gauge in sunny Essen. The MP44 is part of our suite of fully automated beverage can gauges which are rolling out around the world. The MP44 attracted much interest from visitors.

We were impressed by the turnout of exhibitors and the efforts each invested into their stands. Success roared across the halls of Messe Essen, with customers and exhibitors in high spirits and great to deal with.

Versatile Technology had a fantastic show and we’ll see you all for Metpack 2017!
