Efficiency at Work
Although only founded four years ago Envametal brings together more than half a century of experience in metal container and receptacle production and is a model of efficiency and quality.
The company is a national market leader in the production of tins and other metal containers and receptacles, for which it has won respect and recognition internationally, particularly in Latin America and the Caribbean.
As well as containers and lids, Envametal also markets other packaging materials and tin products, pressurised containers, products made of cast iron and other cast metals, modular construction sets as well as other consumer products.
Its principal commitment is growing and improving the quality of its metal receptacle products, with a view to meeting national demand, replace imports and improving exports.
Taking into account the international competition with its access to cutting-edge technology, increasing national demand and the company’s need to renovate and modernise its production plants, a technical development strategy has been designed to satisfy the forecast demands of the Cuban market through an increase in production, as well as the variety and competitiveness of the product while also taking environmental concerns into account.
A recent example of increased efficiency was the installation of a semiautomatic palletizer at the Luis Melian workshop of the Envocc tin container factory in Havana. The machine allows a single operator to accumulate four hundred cans per minute, a total of 4.7 million per month, which will allow the company to meet the production plan of 50 million in 2018, specifically to satisfy national demand.
