Ball Corporation Wins Four "Can Of The Year" Awards, Including Two Gold Awards





BROOMFIELD, Colo., Oct. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ball Corporation (NYSE: BLL), one of the largest metal packaging companies in the world, has won four "Can of the Year" awards in the annual global contest held by The Canmaker magazine, a prominent industry trade publication.

Ball cans received awards in the following categories:

  • A Gold Award in the 2-Piece Beverage Can category, for Ball's 24-oz. Miller Lite can with tactile ink that mimics the feel of an American football. The MillerCoors Grip Can is made with a unique process that uses raised ink which makes the can easier to grip when it is wet or dry.
  • A Gold Award in the Metal Bottles category, for Ball's 16-oz. Alumi-Tek® bottle for Chaka Ale, a specialty craft beer from Oskar Blues and Sun King breweries. The 100-percent recyclable bottle is lightweight, unbreakable, efficient to ship and store, an excellent brand billboard and is impervious to light and oxygen – providing unparalleled flavor protection and long shelf life for the beer inside.
  • A Bronze Award in the 3-Piece Beverage Can category, for Ball's throwback steel beverage can made for Churchkey beer. The retro steel beverage can uses a "church key" to open and is an homage to Americana and great craft beer.
  • A Commendation in the 3-Piece Food Can category, for Ball's can made for Kikkoman Soy Sauce, a gallon-sized oblong can featuring superior printing quality of flat sheet printing to differentiate the package.

"Can innovation helps define and support brands, and our latest award-winning packages are successful examples of that," said Jim Peterson, vice president, marketing and corporate affairs, for Ball. "Great packaging paints a brand's story, and the 360-degree billboard provided by lightweight, recyclable cans offers an unmatched canvas."
