Crown expands North American footprint with new beverage can plant
Crown Holdings has reported that its previously announced Southwestern United States aluminium beverage can manufacturing facility will be located in Mesquite, Nevada.
The two-line plant will supply standard and specialty beverage cans to the company’s customers serving a variety of categories, including carbonated soft drinks, sparkling water, energy drinks, hard seltzers, beer and ready-to-drink cocktails.
The company says the facility improves its ability not only to serve existing customers in the Western United States, but also to support growth of new beverage introductions in aluminium cans.
Located in the Mesquite Technology and Commerce Center, the 355,000 square foot facility is expected to begin operations in the second quarter of 2023 and will create 126 new jobs.
