Who We Are:

Ball Corporation, since its founding in 1880, has evolved and expanded from its humble beginnings as a manufacturer of wood-jacketed tin cans into the global manufacturing leader it is today.  From the development of innovative metal packaging to the beverage, food and consumer goods markets to delivering proven instruments, sensors and spacecraft to the aerospace and defense industries, Ball’s unmatched expertise and global reach ensure that no matter our customers’ mission, we are there to help them achieve it.

Ball’s beverage packaging delivers more than just a cold drink.  We take pride in creating metal beverage cans and bottles that are smart, practical, sustainable and eye-catching.  From our aluminum beverage cans ranging in excess of 20 different sizes to the versatile, recloseable Alumni-Tek bottle to the Dynamark variable printing technology that allows us to print up to 24 design variations per production run, we work closely with our customers to deliver a unique packaging experience to consumers.

Since the aerosol can revolutionized consumer products in the 1940s, Ball has refined and improved the technology to suit today’s needs.  We recently developed a new metal alloy that reduces the weight of our aluminum aerosol cans by as much as 15%.  We also breathed new air into aerosol technology with the introduction of our next generation of tinplate aerosol packaging, which is helping us meet and exceed our customers’ growing expectations.

Metal food packaging has set the standard for freshness and preservation for well over a century, and we continue to push boundaries and innovate in this sector.  What excites us most is the sustainability advantages that metal packaging provides.  It is one of the most environmentally friendly and economical forms of packaging.

With the help of our 18,450 talented employees around the world, Ball will continue torevolutionize our industries, serve our customers, and put the right people, processes and partners in place to help us achieve our vision and create long-term value for all our shareholders.
