During the pandemic, the container manufacturing industry saw skyrocketing sales. Consumers were spending, increasing the demand for production and the types of products in creation. The market was forced to continue to diversify with size changes as consumers preferred sleek cans to transitional cans. Additionally, many customers were requesting greenfield facilities, line additions, facility expansions, and line speed-ups. “The demand for aluminum beverage cans was reaching unprecedented levels. We have been working the past five years toward our strategic growth plan to ensure that we are able to continue to keep pace and provide world-class services and products to our customers,” said Brian Sneed, President & COO of Roeslein & Associates, Inc., parent company to Pride Conveyance Systems. These measures have included expanding its regional footprint, increasing its manufacturing space, and continuously recruiting top talent in professional services.

As the pandemic slowed, inflation rates took a turn, and businesses worldwide rescaled their capital spending. As 2023 has taken off, the container manufacturing industry as a whole is more focused on process improvements, technology updates, and product enhancements.

While working to keep pace over the last few years, Pride Conveyance Systems was also working on a variety of research and development. Known to many as the global standard for conveyance systems, Pride continues to push forward training fabrication teams across Roeslein’s global operations. Customers can now expect to receive the same standard conveyance from Red Bud, Illinois, USA; Michigan City, Indiana, USA; São Paulo, Brazil; Dębno, Poland; or Shanghai, China as they’d receive from the Hollister, California, USA conveyance headquarters.
