Wild Goose Canning TechnologiesGold Sponsor
Three years ago, Boulder’s Wild Goose Engineering was a four-person design, engineering, manufacturing and fabrication outfit with 12 years of experience in churning out products from firefighter safety gear to underwater cameras and airplane parts. Now, Wild Goose is nearly two-dozen people strong, fills out a 10,000-square-foot facility and is anticipating a 67 percent jump in annual revenues. Its boost came from a seemingly unlikely source: beer. Two-and-a-half years after fashioning a canning line for Boulder’s Upslope Brewing Co., Wild Goose has jumped full bore in the beer business, developing manual and automatic canning lines for more than 20 craft breweries across the United States. On Tuesday, Dry Dock Brewing Co. announced that Wild Goose would supply the canning line for the brewery’s new 30,000-square-foot production facility in Aurora.
