Metal screwcaps, tinplate and aluminium containers and closures

Macbey Metal Packaging

Company Description 

Macbey was founded in July 2013 with the intention of bringing a new approach to the metal packaging sector. A focus on customer service and genuine innovation in both products and processes, combined with technical knowhow and simply being nice people to deal with; we think you will find Macbey a refreshing change. 

We manufacture standard (R3) and Pharma or deep pattern screw caps in both tinplate and aluminium. Products can be plain lacquered, coloured or printed with designs up to photo quality, as well as embossed or debossed. We also make aluminium and tinplate tins and containers for which the same options are available. We make bases and lids for composite tubes- the kind whisky bottles come in- and can provide most standard sizes plus special shapes. We can customer design products to suit customer's particular needs. more

Product Range

Macbey make screw caps in both aluminium and tinplate, in sizes from 18 to 100mm diameter, composite tube caps and bases, and pressed and drawn tins. The tins are available in a range of sizes and both tinplate and aluminium. All products can be provided in an almost infinite range of colours, printed designs up to photo quality, and clear or tinted lacquers. They can also be embossed with custom designs, an option which turns a cap or lid from a high quality plain closure to a premium, point of sale eye-catcher.

Design and Tooling Capabilities

We understand that customers just want their products on time and looking great, so we have a full toolroom staffed by our own highly skilled people to ensure that customer’s tools are kept fully maintained and ready for service; you won’t be in a queue waiting for a contractor with Macbey. Most of our production staff have years of experience in the sector, and we have unique production lines equipped with parts transportation which eliminates scratching and in-process damage, carrying parts individually to the next production stage.

Custom Designs

As well as all common sizes of screw cap and tube end, we can make custom tooling to suit customer’s needs- from simple emboss or deboss buttons to put a custom design on a standard part, to completely unique closures including your own shapes, designs, prints embosses and thread forms. Our skilled tooling experts will be happy to discuss your needs with you.


Screwcaps are available in all diameters with R3 thread and standard (400 type) depth from 18mm to 100mm, and in many sizes in ‘deep’, also known as ‘pharma’ or 410 type. They can be produced in Aluminium or tinplate, and as standard are supplied with an EPE liner. Standard alternatives are IHS liner or a PVC flowed in seal, or we are happy to discuss special seal requirements. 

Tube Caps and Bases

We have a great deal of tooling for composite tube caps and bases in round and other shapes. We supply millions of these products to major drinks manufacturers and distillers, and are proud to provide packaging to many household names. Composite tubes are also used for confectionary, biscuits and baked products and rolled paper goods- a metal cap and base immediately speak of quality and attention to detail, and an embossed cap straightaway tells the customer that this is a premium product in the package.

Tinplate Tins

Macbey manufacture high quality tins for premium brands of leather care products, saddlery cleaners and polishes, furniture waxes and shoe care for the European and US markets. Our ‘press to open’ design is easy to use, and the tins can incorporate all the print and embossing features found throughout the Macbey range. Tins are available in a range of sizes and capacities to suit the products, and are provided plain as standard, but can include a liner or flowed in seal if required.

We also produce slip lids and bases, providing a non-threaded, press on closure for smaller containers; these re popular for lip balms, ointments and smokeless tobaccos, and for the latter can be matched to a moulded plastic base.

Aluminium tins and containers

Our drawn aluminium tins give a clean, seam-free package with plenty of space for branding and product information. A range of thread styles and forms is available, and both lids and bases can be provided knurled or plain. As with the screwcaps, printed designs, colours and embossing are all available, and the tins are provided with an EPE liner as standard, with IHS and flowed in seals as alternatives. For premium products with a long open life, our aluminium tins are the ideal choice, providing a durable, drop resistant container, a top quality look and feel, repeated sealability, moisture resistance and 100% recyclability. This is why our tins are the choice for many household name hair and personal care products, as well as food, spice and cooking ingredient suppliers.
