A Storied History

Gilpin has played a pivotal role in the development and adoption of easy-open ends for rigid container packaging around the world, and in the process, making packaging safer and building brands for global, regional and local companies. Our seven decades-long legacy is a point of pride as rarely do companies make this level of impact. Today, nearly every metal, plastic, and composite paperboard can uses some type of easy-open end, from full-panel ring pulls to peelable membranes, bringing safety and convenience to the world. Now, we invite you to meet two of the industry pioneers behind the Gilpin brand.
