We are a leading manufacturer of metal containers in North America and Europe, mainly due to our acquisition and also due to growth with existing customers.
The metal food container market in North America has experienced significant consolidation over the past 30 years, mainly because food processors want to reduce costs and focus their resources on their core business, not on their own

Since 2003, after our acquisition of white hat in the United States to close the business, our net sales of closing the business increased by 7 times to $1.
As a result of acquisitions and internal growth, it was 46 billion per cent in 2018.

We also hope that our plastic container business will continue to grow internally.
As with acquisitions, we pursue internal growth in a disciplined way to generate attractive cash returns.
Through the combination of these efforts, we intend to continue to expand our customer base in markets such as personal care, food, healthcare, pharma, etc, markets for home and industrial chemicals, pet food and care, agriculture, automobiles and marine chemicals.
We intend to increase productivity, manufacturing efficiency, reduce manufacturing costs by investing in capital, continue to improve profitability and optimize our production facilities.
Additional sales and production capabilities provided through acquisitions and investments enable us to streamline plant operations and reduce overhead costs by closing and scaling down the plant.
Starting from 2014, we have closed four metal container manufacturing facilities, one closed manufacturing facility and four plastic container manufacturing facilities, which is related to our continued efforts to simplify factory operations and reduce operating costs, better match supply to geographic demand.
We expect that, thanks to the other benefits of optimizing production scheduling and economies of scale, as well as eliminating redundant sales and management functions, most future acquisitions will continue to enable us to achieve manufacturing efficiency.
In addition to the benefits achieved by integrating the acquisition business, we have improved and expect to continue to improve the operational performance of our plant facilities through investment to increase productivity, improve manufacturing efficiency and reduce manufacturing costs.
Although we have made some investments in some factories, there are still more opportunities in the whole system.
We will continue to look for these opportunities with a rigorous attitude to generate attractive cash returns.
In 2016, we completed the optimization plan in each business, reduced manufacturing and logistics costs, increased productivity and manufacturing efficiency, and therefore, build a lower cost manufacturing network for our businesses and strengthen the competitive position of each of our businesses in their respective markets.

Provide on-site facilities for key customers and other facilities to meet the growing needs of our customers and enable us to further reduce the cost of the plastic container business.
In addition, in 2018, to support sustained growth, we commercialized a new thermoforming plastic container manufacturing facility in the United States.
Manufacturing and production as a practice in the industry, most of our customers provide us with regular product and quantity estimates based on which we make a commitment.
These estimates allow us to effectively manage the production and control of working capital requirements.
We arrange production to meet the requirements of our customers.
Because the production time of our products is very short, the backlog of customer orders related to our sales is not important.
As of February 1, 2019, we have operated 100 production facilities in 19 different countries around the world to meet the needs of our customers.
The manufacturing business of the metal container business includes cutting, coating, printing, manufacturing, assembly and packaging of finished cans.
There are three basic processes in our production of canned goods.
Traditional three
The piece counting method requires three flat metals to form a cylindrical shape with welded edge joints, bottoms and tops.
By using advanced electronic welding monitors and coatings to ensure the high integrity of the side welds, these monitors and coatings are heat cured through induction and convection processes.
The other two methods of producing cans are to form a shallow cup first and then form the required height using the stretching and ironing process or the stretching and re-stretching process.
We manufacture steel and aluminum using stretch and re-stretch processes
The height of the piece tank generally does not exceed the diameter.
For tanks with a height greater than diameter, we manufacture steel 2-

We also provide our closed business customers with customized formulas for sealing/lining materials designed to minimize torque removal and improve the open nature of the closed while meeting applicable regulatory requirements.
We produce plastic caps and distribution systems using two basic processes.
During the compression molding process, the particles of the plastic resin are heated, extruded, and then compressed to form a plastic closed shell.
The plastic enclosure can include a molded wireless seal or a customized compressed molded seal system.
The plastic enclosed housing can then be cut and printed according to the end use.
During the injection molding process, plastic resin particles are heated and injected into the mold to form a plastic housing or other distribution system components such as triggers, decorative covers, actuators, valves, or overcovers.
The plastic closure shell can include a molded wireless seal or a customized sealing system.
The plastic enclosed housing can then be cut and printed according to the end use.
In the case of the dispensing system, the dispensing system components are assembled into the dispensing system, and can be printed according to the final use of the dispensing system.
We produce plastic containers using two basic processes.
During extrusion blow molding, the particles of the plastic resin are heated and squeezed out of the plastic pipe. A two-
Then, close a piece of metal mold around the plastic pipe and blow the high pressure air into it, causing the bottle to form the mold shape.
During the injection and injection stretch blow molding process, the particles of the plastic resin are heated and injected into the mold to form the plastic preforming body.
Then blow the plastic pre-made stick into the bottle-
Create a plastic bottle by shaping a metal mold.
Our Plastic Thermoforming bowls, trays and bathtubs are made by melting plastic resin particles into extruded plastic sheets.
The plastic sheet is then formed into a mold and made into a plastic bowl, tray or bathtub. We have state-of-the-

Based on our existing arrangements with our suppliers and our current and expected requirements, we believe that we are well prepared to obtain raw materials in the foreseeable future.
However, due to the large integration of suppliers, we rely on a limited number of suppliers of steel, aluminum, coatings and composite raw materials.
The price of raw materials is generally passed on to customers according to our many
Annual customer supply arrangement and increase through general price.
We use tin-plated steel and chrome-plated steel, aluminum, copper wire, organic coating, lining compound and ink in the manufacture and decoration of metal container products.
Our material requirements are provided through agreements and purchase orders with suppliers we work with for a long time
Term relationship.
If our suppliers do not deliver as they arrange, we will be forced to buy raw materials in the open market and we cannot guarantee that we will be able to buy this raw material or, if we can, we will be able to purchase these raw materials at comparable prices or terms.
Although the supplier has done a lot of integration, we believe that we are prepared enough to purchase a sufficient amount of these raw materials to meet the requirements of our customers in the foreseeable future.
The metal container supply agreement we have signed with our customers provides delivery for our metal cost changes.
For customers who do not have long metal containers
Long term agreements, we also generally raise prices to increase our metal costs by increasing them.
We use tin-plated steel and chrome-plated steel, aluminum, organic coating, low
Metal inks and cardboard, plastic and organic lining materials in the manufacture of metal closures.
We use resin in the form of particles in the manufacture of plastic closure and distribution systems, such as homogeneous polypropylene, polypropylene and high density polyethylene, thermoplastic elastic lining materials, processing additives and pigments.
Although we can\'t guarantee it, we believe that despite the large integration of suppliers, we are prepared enough to buy enough of these raw materials to meet the requirements of customers in the foreseeable future.
Our closed supply agreement with our customers usually specifies changes in the cost of our metals and resins, and in many cases the resin lags behind in the time of this passage.
For customers we don\'t close for a long time
Long term agreement, our closing business also usually changes through the cost of our metals and resins.
The raw materials we use in the plastic container business are mainly resin in the form of particles, such as raw high density polyethylene, raw PET, recycled high density polyethylene, recycled PET, polypropylene and, to a lesser extent, polystyrene, low density polyethylene, pet diol, PVC, polyester and medium density polyethylene.
Our resin demand is through more
Make annual arrangements with several major resin suppliers on specific quantities of resin.
The price we pay for resin raw materials is not fixed, subject to market pricing, which has fluctuated greatly in the past few years.
The plastic container supply agreement we have signed with our customers provides for the delivery of our resin cost changes, and in many cases the time for such delivery will lag.
For our plastic container customers who don\'t have a long time
Long term agreement, our plastic container business also generally changes through the cost of our resin.
We believe that in the absence of unforeseen events such as major hurricanes, we are prepared enough to purchase a sufficient amount of resin to meet the customer\'s requirements for the foreseeable future
Our philosophy has been developing --
Maintain customer relationships by working with our customers to provide reliable quality and service.

The sales and operating income of our metal container business depends in part on the vegetable and fruit harvest in the Midwest and western regions of the United States, to a lesser extent, in the planting areas in multiple European countries.
The size and quality of these harvests vary from year to year, depending largely on the weather conditions in these areas.
Due to the seasonality of the harvest, we experienced higher unit sales in the third quarter of the fiscal year, and in that quarter we received a non-proportional annual income from operations.

Due to the high cost of transporting empty containers, our metal container business is usually sold to customers within a 300 mile radius of its manufacturing plant.
Strategically positioning the existing plant gives us an edge over our competitors in other regions, but we may be disadvantaged by the relocation of a major customer.
While metal containers are facing competition from plastic, paper, glass and composite containers, we believe that metal containers are superior in application to plastic, composite containers and paper containers, in the case of high temperature preparation or packaging in a larger number of consumers or institutions, or in the case of a long period of time
While maintaining the quality of the product, the long-term storage of the product is desirable.
