 Growth Strategy
In order to achieve our mission, we are pressing forward with a four-pronged growth strategy:
Adding Value by introducing higher-margin, value-added products, line extensions and innovative packaging formats that cater to our customers' needs. Our goal over time is to migrate our product mix from traditional, canned products to premium products that have higher margins and greater growth potential.
Improving Customer Service by introducing new packaging capabilities to meet worldwide requirements with greater flexibility and better time-to-market.
Enhancing Product Quality and Reducing Costs with prudent investments in productivity programs, production technology and supply chain management.
Building Markets by growing existing markets and expanding into new ones. We will work to achieve this by pursuing acquisitions, joint ventures, and/or strategic alliances that make sound business and financial sense.
