C arnaudMetalbox Engineering is a successful UK manufacturer specialising in high-speed, precision metal forming and finishing machines and tooling, which are used to produce cans for the global beverage and food markets. Yorkshire’s best kept secret Shipley, West Yorkshire is the location and UK Headquarters of CarnaudMetalbox Engineering (CMB Engineering) which has designed, developed and manufactured can making machinery for over 80 years. Originally founded in the 1930s, CMB Engineering is now wholly owned by Crown Holdings, a global leader in metal packaging technology. We are driven by a passion to deliver reliability, continuous improvement, quality and service. We’re in a unique position – we create machines not only for our parent organisation but also for the majority of Crown’s competitors and customers in the canning industry. The Queen’s awards for exports In recent years the metal packaging industry has introduced distinctive and technically diverse packaging solutions to attract consumers and promote brand loyalty. This has provided CMB Engineering with tremendous opportunities to work closely with our clients, designing and developing highly specialised, bespoke machinery. The company has seen turnover triple over the past ten years, particularly in export markets which now account for over 90% of all sales. This rapidly-expanding global sales performance has been recognised twice with The Queen’s Awards for Export International Trade in 2010 and 2014, with a further application being made this year.
