Family Business Tour – Cask Global Canning Solutions
September 21 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm MDT
→ Part of Celebrating Family Enterprise — Calgary
Come tour the family business that invented micro-canning – Cask Global Canning Solutions! Their family values include “crushing complacency” – they have a special place in history, but the day they become complacent is the day that they become irrelevant. Learn how this family business stays ahead of the game in an industry that is constantly evolving.
Cask Global Canning Solutions has roots that date back to 1905 when their great grandfather kicked off the entrepreneurial spirit, now rooted in their DNA, with a hide trading and cattle feed business. Fast forward 117 years and 4 generations, they have evolved into a manufacturing and distribution company focused on bringing positive change to the world with aluminum cans – an infinitely recyclable product. Cask now serves 1,800 craft beverage makers in 71 countries.
Chas is one of three brothers that owns and operates Cask, alongside their father, Peter. Chas has been an active employee of Cask for over 7 years, starting as an assembler in the shop and now sits as the Director of Sales – International. Not yet a serial entrepreneur as Cask is only business venture number two, he is passionate about the platform a family business provides to be able to create the opportunity for the growth and development of others.
