In this video, Martin Kamil, COO and CFO of Black Fly Beverage Co., takes us on a journey along the canning line of the “largest ready-to-drink independent co-packer in Canada.”

“It’s not about price. It’s about trust,” says Kamil of his relationship with Storcan and the Blendtech pasteurizer division of Italian manufacturer TMCI Group.

“TMCI did a great job during the pandemic to deliver their machine on time and on budget,” maintains Kamil. A well functioning pasteurizer is “our main line of defence to ensure customers have a safe product to drink.”

Blendtech Sales Manager Massimo D’Ambros Rosso says, “Due to space requirements, we built with our partner Storcan a double-deck entry and exit system for our most balanced pasteurizer model, in terms of thermal and energy consumption.”

Hugo Lorquet of Storcan adds, “Running at these speeds, we needed a first-in and first-out operation with four accumulating tables… all in one production room.”

Martin Kamil concludes, “Storcan and TMCI have delivered on all the things that matter. They made our dream a reality.”

Watch “a kilometre of conveyor system” carry, speed up, stop and accumulate cans according to exacting production requirements.
