Archaeology of Pull Tabs

Okay, so yeah, pull tabs, but where are they made? Where can we find the factories? This page is work in progress and only slowly growing. (last update February 2020). I’m working more or less inside out, starting with the Netherlands, to Europe, to the rest of the world. Problematic in this study is that although companies, or ‘holdings’ often show maps or lists of their factories, they do not always include information about what is made there. Is it cans, is it ends, or is it something completely different, like bottles?

In general the kind of data that is shown here here is factory name (and corporation), geolocation and -if known- products made.
