WHO WE ARE
Belvac is the world leader in the design and production of continuous motion rotary machinery. We provide beverage canmakers with high-speed trimming, necking, base reprofiling and reforming, shaping, bottom rim coating, flanging and inspection technology. Over the years, we have been responsible for numerous advances in canmaking technology. This technology has enabled our customers to steadily increase line speeds and improve quality and productivity, while significantly reducing materials costs.
Belvac was founded in 1962 in Lynchburg Virginia. Philosophies of quality, pride, craftsmanship, and work ethic set extremely high standards and quickly drove Belvac to become the world leader in its industry revolutionizing many manufacturing processes. For over forty years Belvac has turned innovative ideas into world class machinery. Serving both the Can Making and Plastics industry.
In 1962 Alphonse Stroobants, a Belgian immigrant opened the doors of Belgium Tool and Die in Lynchburg, Va., a business specializing in high quality precision machining. He founded this business with the old world philosophies of quality, work ethic, pride, and craftsmanship as well as new world entrepreneurial spirit. That rare combination of assets provided the foundation that allowed the company to convert innovative ideas into production machines which have revolutionized the can making industry.
In 1975, the introduction of an advanced rotary can cutting machine enabled Belgium Tool and Die to capture a world-wide market and make the transition to Belvac Production Machinery. Success with this product established Belvac’s creditability, allowing it, in 1978, to expand into related machinery markets with the development of a bottom coating machine. In 1982 Belvac bought the Colorado division of Irvin Industries, which was the established manufacture of a necking machine licensed from Coors. Belvac then applied its extremely high standards and innovative improvements to the original Irvin design. The resulting Belvac Necker set production standards world-wide.
Today Belvac is a part of the Dover Corporation (NYSE-DOV). Dover is a diversified global manufacturer with annual revenue of approximately $7 billion.
