As a medium-sized business whose history spans almost over a hundred years, Pano is a reliable constant in an industry whose image has been greatly changed by globalisation. Today, Pano is one of the few manufacturers of metal packaging and technologies for sealing glass jars that has remained independent. This is where our opportunities lie, also resulting in our strengths.
Geared to the needs of the customer, the retail market and the consumer, Pano constantly seeks innovative approaches in the new and further development of closures and machines. An example can be seen in the development of BLUESEAL®, the world's first lug cap, whose sealing ring is free of PVC and plasticizers. Because the BLUESEAL closure seal is free of plasticizers, a pollutant migration into the filling is excluded.
2011 BLUESEAL® was awarded the German Packaging Award, probably the most prestigious packaging award in Europe.
Pano is producing the PVC-free BLUESEAL® caps with environmentally friendly and sustainable technology in a newly built factory. The benefits: No environmental pollution by emissions, lower energy consumption in closure production and problem-free recycling. The complete factory is heated by process heat recovery. The compressed air is produced both oil-free and efficiently according to the latest state-of-the-art technology.
The demand is growing and growing. From 2017, Pano will produce PVC-free on five production lines. To be able to make sufficient quantities of material available at the prefabrication stage, an additional painting line has been put into operation in the new production building.
