Maverick Enterprises is an elite secondary closure provider for the wine, distilled spirits, and specialty foods industries.  We produce over 3.4 million capsules per day on our 24 production lines.  Maverick is a domestic supplier providing custom and stock closures to a majority of Napa Valley and Northern California as well as all across the United States. 

Our two facilities are located in Ukiah, CA in beautiful Mendocino County.  We are a fully vertically-integrated manufacturing facility which means we perform all functions in-house.  Maverick prints raw material with custom ink, slits the material and then forms the capsules all in their own facilities. 

However, what sets Maverick even more apart from anyone in the industry?  3 things: We take enormous pride in providing industry standards in customer care, technical services and high quality products you can't get anywhere else.

Call us today and find out how best we can help you with your capsule needs.

                                                  

 

 


 

 

 

The Leading Manufacturer of Capsules


Maverick provides custom color matching, award-winning rotogravure printing and innovative capsule manufacturing. Through our manufacturing process we're able to produce the highest quality custom capsules in the industry for our customers.

We produce the following substrates: PVC (heat shrink), Polylam, Almost Tin Premium™ (Thicker poly for those not-so-poly friendly bottles) and champagne capsules as well as our CapASleeve™ (PVC capsule without a top disk for those that might use a t-stopper with a custom design).

For those customers who may need smaller quanitities of capsules we also carry a wide variety of stock capsules that can be ordered in quanitities of 1 box and above at cost effective prices for our customers. Our webstore is readily available, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and we fill orders within 2-3 business days.

 

Custom Color Matching

Every capsule project is printed with custom mixed inks developed by our professional ink technicians. Our technicians are able to match an array of different color samples, ranging from Pantone swatches, labels or packaging material.

We offer pre-press appointments for difficult color matching and press checks to ensure consistent color. Our electronic ink management system stores all of our custom formulas to ensure a perfect match every time.


Outstanding Production Team

At Maverick, we print and form 100% of our capsule orders. This assures top quality and faster turn around for your bottling needs. No project leaves the US for production making Maverick one of the few closure providers that offers completely domestic manufacturing where you can track your project from inception to delivery with our customer care team.

Our In-House Design Team works closely with both Print and Capsule Production and endeavors to optimize your artwork for the best quality and branding possible for your products. We work with customers to ensure the designs they are receiving are exactly what they asked for and work to ensure we can provide one of a kind art for projects each and every time.

Quality Formed Products

Maverick's whole process is dedicated to an end quality product that we check every step of the way.  Our press department pulls for the best color match possible, prints that material where it is verified by our ink technicians for color, then checked again by our slitters to ensure the highest print quality.  Maverick's Quality department then inspects all capsules and material that runs through our forming machines to make certain that each customer receives quality capsules each and every time. 

Field Service

Our technical field representatives provide on-site assistance to ensure your capsules are applied with the highest quality and efficiency. We provide application specifications for our Polylaminate and PVC capsules to assist your bottling line personnel in optimizing and troubleshooting bottling equipment. Our technical reps can also share their expertise on bottling line equipment and any required adjustments to optimize application of our capsules.


Polylaminate

Polylaminate capsules are comprised of a three layer aluminum-polyethylene-aluminum seamed skirt and aluminum top disc. They provide a professional and cost effective packaging solution. Polylaminate and Almost Tin™ capsules can be hot stamped and have a variety of top artwork options. Both substrates can have a C-Cut tab added for easy removal.

 

 

 

 

 

Almost Tin Premium™

ATP CapsulesOur Almost Tin™ capsules are comprised of a more durable three layer material that is a great recyclable and less costly alternative to tin capsules. Almost Tin™ is optimum for bottles that present challenges with spin down (this also includes bottles for distilled spirits, which have custom shaped necks).


PVC (Heat Shrink) Capsules / PET(G)

PVC capsules can be an economical alternative to traditional Polylaminate or Tin capsules. PVC comes in an array of colors, which can provide more options for artwork layout and design possibilities. These capsules are comprised of a PVC skirt and an aluminum or clear top disc. PET(G) capsules can be a more environmentally friendly capsule option. The process for printing both PVC and PET(G) is the same, as well as forming. Tear tape is available for both substrates.

 


 

 

 

Champagne

Champagne CapsulesChampagne capsules are a combination of a three layer Polylaminate body and a paper foil or aluminum top disc. They provide a clean and premium finish to champagne packaging. The skirts can be printed or hot stamped. We also offer a pebbled texture that is applied during our forming process. All champagne tops are printed. Ventilation holes (grillages) and tear tape are also available for these capsules.

Hot Stamping

Hot stamp foil can be applied to all capsule substrates but PET(G). Hot stamp material is ordered based on the foil callout indicated by the customer and cannot be shown in our draw down process. We generally match KURZ or Crown hot stamp colors, but can special order material upon customer request (this may or may not be subject to testing prior to forming).

Size / Function / Fit

A bottle sample is required for all Maverick capsule projects to ensure customer satisifcation. We provide accurate sizing based on the bottle dimensions, placement of any additional labels (neck labels), desired fit and the type of equipment used during bottling. Each bottle is reviewed for optimum placement of removal features and custom artwork by our team prior to production.

Removal Features

We offer removal features on all of our capsules. Tear tab/tape is only offered for PVC, PET(G) and Champagne capsules. For those substrates we also offer perforations and notcherations. Below are our available tear tab colors.

Maverick Enterprises forms the MavGreen Earth Program with Green Earth Solutions
20 October, 2017

Maverick Enterprises, the leading supplier in secondary closure for the wine and distilled spirits industry serves as the largest closure supplier in North America. With this position, we at Maverick feel a continued responsibility to lead in our efforts for a sustainable green company.

As such Maverick has been in search of a company who will work to allow us to recycle certain items from our facility that most here in California have found to be very difficult. In an effort to find a source to divert items such as corrugate, pallets, and stretch film away from landfills, our team was in need of a solution that would be environmentally impactful and began researching and speaking with numerous companies.

After learning so many contacts in the recycling industry do not have these abilities still, and others who were unable to service this area of Northern California we were fortunate- enough to team up with someone who felt this cause was one of missed opportunity.

From our ambition to make an impact sprang a new company, we could not be more proud of and Adam Hewitt, owner and operator of Green Earth Solutions has partnered with Maverick Enterprises to pioneer and bring a revolutionary recycling program to Ukiah. Hewitt states that, “Green Earth Solutions Mission is to help companies become more sustainable by offering recycling solutions to waste management, which will aid businesses in finding ways to recycle waste and helping companies become more sustainable. We are a free consulting, recycling company based in Ukiah, California and will provide free bins, and offer free pickup to meet your company’s needs.”

On October 16th Maverick launched our initiative, the MavGreen Earth program that will mark the beginning of Maverick earning the state certification as a ‘Green Certified’ company within the next year. Along with our continual efforts in sustainability and turning our community into a global movement, Maverick’s new program will also put our company on the path to achieve becoming a company that is for profit, but works to solve social and environmental problems, known as a Business Corporation or B Corp.

With numerous other companies in the Ukiah area getting on board and starting their own programs from the determination of Maverick and Green Earth Solutions, we look forward to seeing companies thrive in Mendocino County in their renewed sustainability through this lasting partnership.

The Importance of a Wine Capsule
13 July, 2016

In 1986 Prop 65 banned the use of lead in closures for the wine industry limiting what those here in the US could use for these products. In 1992, Maverick was started with the goal to bring customers non-lead, secondary closures, to the wine, distilled spirits and specialty food industries all to allow customers the ability to have their products produced in a fully vertically, integrated facility with all domestically produced products in house from start to finish. This creates, faster lead times, easily managed products via centralized location and quick response times to help you invent your closures.

This begs the question to some, why are capsules important for your wine? Here at Maverick we strive to make evident two major reasons why capsules are so useful and paramount to your product.

  1. A capsule creates a tamper evident seal.  What does this mean for your wines? Customers can rest assured that their wine is safely bottled and sealed for their use and no tampering has been done to their beverage of choice. Their capsule will show if someone has tampered with their wine making it one of the safest steps you can take in ensuring your product is just as you intended as it leaves your bottling facility and goes out to the many stores for retail.

  2. Not only does it create this seal, but it also creates the finishing touch on your package and lends for extra branding for your customers. After all, why not brand something that you are also using for safety purposes that matches your overall product look?

Here at Maverick we work with a very talented team to design, print, form and ship your capsules all from our location in Ukiah, CA. Our capsules are made in the US and our customer care team is standing by to assist you on your order from inception to delivery. Give us a call today (707-463-5591) or visit our website at www.maverickcaps.com to learn more about our products and how best we can help you with your next project!

Maverick: Raising the Bar on Capsule Production for the Beverage Industry Since 1992
04 May, 2016

PVC 920

In 1992, Maverick Enterprises, Inc. was founded with the goal to domestically produce capsules for the wine industry in the United States with nothing, but the best quality on the market.

Proposition 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, had banned the use of lead in all capsule products, so the wine industry was looking to international sources to fulfill their beverage closure needs.

When Maverick came into the market and began its domestic production with just one forming machine they manufactured over 20 million state of-the-art, non-lead capsules in their first year.

Enticing the domestic market to look at their business models and change to a domestic supplier for faster turnaround times and higher quality, Maverick became the supplier of choice.

Almost Tin Premium 600

Almost Tin Premium

That was just the beginning.

“Now we produce over 3.5 million capsules per day,” Shelby White, Maverick Enterprises, Inc.’s Marketing Coordinator proudly proclaims.

“We’re a fully vertically integrated facility,” she explains. “We do everything ourselves; printing, slitting, converting and shipping – and all at our Ukiah location in northern California.”

Maverick produces capsules in five, primary substrates that allow for maximum flexibility and creativity to meet its customers’ diverse needs. They include:

  • Polylaminate – comprised of a three-layer aluminum-polyethylene skirt and an aluminum top disc. They provide a professional and cost effective packaging solution.
  • Almost Tin Premium™ – comprised of a more premium three-layer material that is a great recyclable and less costly alternative to tin capsules. This substrate bridges the gap between polylaminate and tin capsules for a fraction of the cost allowing for maximum malleability in a poly capsule.
  • PVC/PET (G) – comprised of a PVC skirt and an aluminum top disc. The option of a bio-based, eco-friendly and compostable PVC alternative in PET(g) material can be provided as well by Maverick.
  • CapASleeve™ – an alternative PVC capsule without a top disk to display any possible custom T-closure. Artwork can be printed on the skirts for a custom CapASleeve™ or stock options are also available.
  • Champagne – comprised of a three-layer, polylaminate body and an aluminum top disc to provide a clean and premium finish to champagne packaging. A mirage of hot stamping and printing options allow for one of a kind customization.
Maverick's 4 Color Process 600

Maverick’s 4 Color Process

“Our talented Design Team works with existing brand designs or can help create completely new artwork to give our customers an exciting new package design,” White affirms. “We’re always looking for new and innovative ways of providing packaging to our customers to help them succeed; coupled with high-level attention to detail, our customer service and quality products make the difference.”

In addition to custom capsule options, White points out that Maverick has a stock capsule program, which allows customers to purchase smaller quantities for special reserve brands or varietals that may require just one-color, more simple designs. This allows Maverick to help customers big and small to meet their diverse packaging needs.

Another great feature of these boxes is its recyclable quality. Maverick has had in place for many years within its green initiative, a recycling program with our boxes where we can have as many as 7 or more uses from each box as we work with our customers to pick up all empty boxes and return them to our Ukiah facility for reuse.  These newest boxes will stand the test against even more uses then before and overall quality improvements our customers have come to count on.

Taking into account the environment our supplier Capital Corrugated & Carton is ISO 9001 and 14001 certified and also works with the Safe Forest Initiative (SFI).  To make sure that all of their efforts in manufacturing are renewable Capital has created a Tree Planting Program and for each box made they plant 4-5 trees to continue the cycle of a sustainability in the environment.

PVC (Heat Shrink) Capsules / PET(G)

PVC capsules can be an economical alternative to traditional Polylaminate or Tin capsules. PVC comes in an array of colors, which can provide more options for artwork layout and design possibilities. These capsules are comprised of a PVC skirt and an aluminum or clear top disc. PET(G) capsules can be a more environmentally friendly capsule option. The process for printing both PVC and PET(G) is the same, as well as forming. Tear tape is available for both substrates.
