About us

United Canister Corporation (UCC) is considered among the first facilities in the world dedicated to the production of high-quality tins and boxes.

Originally developed by the French company Paul Lagache who has been manufacturing metal packaging since 1886, UCC revived the idea in 2013. Despite dramatic expansion, we are still committed to the production of high-quality tins and boxes using the original unique processes combining ancestral know-how and advanced technology.

Our extensive experience in the fabrication of metal packaging allows us to offer product innovation, unparalleled quality, short lead times and great flexibility in terms of quantities and above all, helping our customers to add value to their products.

You can rest assured that wherever in the world you pack your product, our customer service team will be on hand to supply and support you.

Our commitment

A performing & flexible factory

Within a hectare plant, the industrial site has a production capacity of up to 1 million tin per month.

Flexibility is key to our success, Whether it’s a one-off special edition or a large volume, put us to the test and we will be pleased to assist with your requirements whatever they are.

A polyvalent R&D team for project management

Thanks to our long experience in manufacturing customized premium metal tins and boxes, whether it being for packing teas or other products such as delicatessen, chocolate, accessories, candles or cosmetics, UCC's creative technical team can assist you from the research and development of the basic design, the feasibility study of the product to finally delivering the finished article to your exact specifications.

A craftsmanship finish via an industrial process

Recognized worldwide for the exceptional quality of its lacquering and screen printing, UCC has set up a high-performance industrial tool to manufacture luxurious metal boxes resistant to the wear of time, making them an artisanal product.


Manufacturing metal boxes of your choice

With our semi-automatic production lines, UCC is flexible in producing small series while preserving automatic chains for large volumes.

Our high-performance equipments enable us to offer our customers a wide choice of box formats and accessory types according to customer’s needs.


Thanks to our paint mix preparation laboratory, we will help you find your desired color according to a RAL color chart or even create a new shade of your choice. Unlike others, we have in-house lacquering laboratories for testing and developing.

Our paint chains offer a wide range of colors and effects (Gloss, Satin, Matt ...).


Our screen printing gives a luxurious handcrafted effect and reinforces the very elegant rendering of the packaging thanks to its artistic process. UCC develops the ancient art of silk printing while bringing an industrial touch to meet the demands of large orders. Our in-house frame and ink preparation laboratories collaborate to offer high precision rendering and high opacity. Just like our lacquering, we can create customized ink colors in our specialized laboratories.

Sustainability and Recycling

In times of increasing awareness of sustainability and environmental protection, the great strength of metal packaging lies in its incredible recyclability. It is one of the most sustainable and recyclable materials available in the packaging world.

Metals are natural elements that can be used again and again, it will always be available for future generations. This means metal is a permanent material.

The metal packaging industry and its recycling stakeholders are committed to a real-recycling society. We, at UCC are committed to protecting the environment and we make sure that all our metal wastage is recycled.

Our tinplate boxes meet the requirements of the European Regulation 1935/2004 for the food regulation packaging sector.
