SCOTT LABORATORIES PRESS RELEASE

Petaluma, California – April 2021 – Scott Laboratories, the leading supplier of packaging, equipment, filtration and fermentation products for the North American wine industry, is excited to announce that they are the new exclusive distributor of Amcor tin capsules for the United States market. 

After just over two short years of collaboration, Scott Labs has already increased new account sales for Amcor tin capsules in the US by 10%. With demand for quality tin capsules increasing, coupled with the need for more efficient and economical distribution, Amcor wanted to consolidate their US representation. Scott Labs was perfectly positioned to help Amcor achieve these objectives, which will result in shorter lead times for custom and stock tin customers, increased local presence and consistency. 

Frederic Catteau, Director of Amcor Capsules North America, comments “Amcor and Scott Laboratories joined forces two years ago, serving both Tin capsules and STELVIN® screwcaps. In Tin Softgard capsules especially, our teamwork has been astonishing. Scott Labs’ knowledge of and exposure to the high-end wine market, serving top natural cork and now Tin Overcaps, is remarkable. Our long-term, successful partnership makes this exclusive distribution in the USA a natural next step.”

Chris Holman, General Manager of Scott Labs’ Cork & Packaging Department, comments “We’re thrilled to be representing Amcor’s line of tin capsules in the US wine industry. The Amcor brand is synonymous with quality, and we pride ourselves on providing only the highest quality products and solutions for our customers. This is a big step forward for Scott Labs and our extended community. We look forward to many more years of collaboration and partnership with the Amcor team.” 

In addition to tin capsules, Scott Labs also carries the full line of stock and custom STELVIN® closures from Amcor.
