Ardagh invests in Deeside plant
Following the recent completion of an investment project, Ardagh has announced that it will now supply two additional beverage ends from its Deeside, UK plant: the 200 B64 and the 202 CDL ends. This follows the conversion of its final 202 B64 module to the more sustainable 202 CDL end.
Oliver Graham, CEO Ardagh Metal Beverage, said: “Our goal is to remain a leading supplier of inherently sustainable packaging by continuously pursuing superior solutions.
“This significant investment in Deeside strengthens Ardagh’s position in the market place and allows us greater flexibility in end sizes to support both existing and new customer requirements.”
The Deeside plant was established in 1988 to produce 206 diameter ring pull ends. In 1994, the plant converted to 202 B64 aluminium ends to support new can sizes and introduced the CDL end in 2010 for the first time. For the past decade, the plant sends zero waste to landfill.
