History of Can


Peter Duran patented the steel can in the UK. Soon after, he sold the patent to an English company that exchanged glass containers and cork stoppers for tinned iron cans.


Max Mas and Julius Brezinger, realizing the need to meet demand, have created a system for high-speed can production. After a year of study, they patented a system that made 20,000 cans a day.


In World War I steel packaging served as one of the few sources of food for soldiers. Because they spent too much time entrenched, they could not seek other sources of food, at the risk of being hit by enemies.


The cans are now made of tin sheets, a better quality material, laminated and composed of iron and steel.
