Focus on can business

The Nussbaum Group withdraws from the tube business. Due to the difficult market situation in the field of aluminium tubes, Nussbaum Matzingen AG has decided to concentrate on its core business, the development and production of aluminium cans. The management regrets that by this the last Swiss aluminium tube manufacturer is closing its doors.


35 employees at the Kesswil plant are affected. The management is developing a social-compensation-plan to avoid hardship cases. Fortunately, with the planned expansion of the headquarters in Matzingen, several employees might be offered a job opportunity at Matzingen site.


The tube production lines were sold as part of an asset purchase agreement to LINHARDT GmbH & Co. KG.


As a pioneer for innovations Nussbaum Group is specialized in production of monobloc aluminium cans and further aluminium packaging solutions since 1963 at three production sites. A substantial focus is the traditional development of sustainable products with environmental friendly production methods.


We are proud of the worldwide first monobloc aluminium can with unbeatable CO2 reduction of 96% and market availability, produced of 100% used-beverage-cans. With our further top sellers like refillable screw cans, deo roll cans and shaker cans, we are expecting considerable growth.
