A historical actor
For more than 40 years by your side, to develop the screw caps for wine market.
Australian Consolidated Industries (ACI) obtains the rights to manufacture Stelcap closures. First use of «Le Bouchage Mécanique» Stelcap closures over driven cork in Australian at Yalumba.
1st generation of seals
This cap has no Redraw and requires a very compressible barrier seal of which surface is flexible enough to be able to avoid a too fast oxydation. A complex on a base Cork + Tin and PVDC is created.
Swiss winemakers turn out to screw cap en masse for chasselas, using many millions of cap annually.
2nd generation of seals
Launched on the Tin PVDC Facing base assembled on a foamed PE (Polexan) whose characheristics have been traced on the compression level / resilience of the Cork (250/300 kg/m3) and 2.0 mm.
Creation of œnoseal
Development of versions more permeable than the tin allowing wines with a reductive tendency to age better with the screw cap: the Oenoseal S was born!
EXTENSION OF THE OENOSEAL RANGE
Years after years, variations of Oenoseal S standards will be created to allow taking into account the different criteria of capsuling (small and big diameters, torque force, lightly sparkling wines...)
EXPLOSION OF THE DEMAND
Oceania adopts massively the screw cap, encouraged by the British Large-scale distribution.
MGJ optimizes its process of manufacturing in order to accompany the strong growth of the Market
The screw cap continues its strong growth in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, but also in Europe.
The volume of 3 Billion screw caps is reached which represents 1 bottle of wine on 6 sold in the world!
AMCOR INTRODUCES "STELVIN® INSIDE"
Amcor Capsules, in partnership with MGJ, launches its new range Stelvin® Inside with a choice of 4 levels of permeability:
1 O2, 3 O2, 5 O2, 7 O2.
A globalized market
The volumes have risen above 5 billion screw caps, representing 1 wine bottle on 4, at the world level.
The MGJ know-how is recognized by all the screw caps manufacturers and the Oenoseal market share exceeds 70%.
GUALA CLOSURES & MGJ LAUNCH "WINE DEVELOPERS"
Guala Closures and MGJ join their expertises to develop and launch a new range of OENOSEAL for wine nano-oxygenation including 3 levels of permeability : Onyx, Ivory, Coral.
In addition, , a software for decision making, is displayed on line on the Internet website, allowing wine producers to select the most suitable liner for the wine which will be embottled.
