After announcing its bankruptcy in the podcast “Les Affaires Brassicoles #293,” Sébastien Baril announces the company’s comeback.
What can you tell us about this relaunch?
After the bankruptcy process, new investors acquired Solucan‘s assets intending to continue what the previous administration had started. A new entity is now behind Solucan, maintaining the brand. We have aligned ourselves with a new plan.
Next, we sought to restore the printing capability of our equipment. To achieve this, we used parts from one of our machines to rebuild another. We have been working on this for 2 months and have successfully revived our 355 ml/12oz machine with a very good reliability rate. We are very proud of this achievement.
For the next few months, we will be able to offer digitally printed 355 ml cans. Other formats will follow later in the mid-year. However, we can now offer pre-printed cans (dry offset – all formats) at a competitive cost.
We announced our comeback to our former clients yesterday. So far, the response is very positive, especially since the 355 ml format is gaining new popularity due to the current situation.
Solucan, a company based in Trois-Rivières, provides digital printing on cans for the brewing and food industries across North America. We will interview Sébastien Baril in a few weeks to discuss the new partners and equipment. To be continued.
