New Glarus Can Line Case Study – New Glarus turned to Hartness to put a new can line into operation in 8 months or less. Hartness helped them achieve their goal and today they are the top selling craft beer can in Wisconsin.
New Glarus has been bottling beer for almost 25 years. They found a partner in Hartness to fulfill their vision to install a new very simple, clean, automated and self-sufficient can line.
A couple of years ago, New Glarus decided it was time to expand into canning and researched the best way to put beer in a can. One challenge they faced was the limited footprint available for the new can line. The brewery investigated many companies and ultimately selected Hartness because of their expertise in both manufacturing equipment and systems Integration. In record time, Hartness designed and installed a compact line that met New Glarus’ speed and space constraints.
By the end of the year 2016, New Glarus Brewery was the bestselling craft beer can in Wisconsin.
