Screw cap aluminum closures for wine, in eye-catching colors, beautifully decorated and made-to-order, are now available to the North American wine industry from WE Pack, part of the ACI group of companies. ACI CORK USA (Fairfield, CA) is the exclusive distributor for the complete range of high quality screw caps manufactured in Italy by technology leader Federfin Tech SRL.

Barrel 27 Wine Company is one of the North American wineries to use the screw caps supplied by WE Pack/ACI CORK USA. Made to strict tolerances, these screw caps have no perforations or wrinkles on the shirt of the closure when applied, resulting in a high barrier wine closure that is easy-open, functional and attractive.

For wineries on tight deadlines to bring out new products, WE Pack/ACI offers a maximum 6 week timeframe for new product design. Fast delivery times result from Federfin's newly built state-of-the-art manufacturing plant, where 16 assembly lines mean no production bottlenecks. Quick time to market, high screw cap quality standards, and product innovation are hallmarks of WE Pack/ACI.

Composition of WE Pack/ACI screw cap products is typically a printable composite that includes tin foil, topping a 7-layer Saranex barrier film with a plastic liner. WE Pack/ACI provides a complete range of screw cap closures in a wide assortment of metallic, satin or bright colors to coordinate with packaging and label design, and embossed and/or offset printed decoration enhance the graphic appeal of the closure.

Wine market acceptance of screw cap has grown in recent years. Reasons include ease of consumer opening and reclosability, and no leakage in storage and distribution. The total oxygen barrier and lack of interaction with SO 2 means that the organoleptic qualities and flavor of the wine at time of bottling are preserved.

WE Pack is part of the ACI group of companies that focuses on offering many alternative closures for the wine industry. Technical assistance on screw cap application is also available through WE Pack.
