Constellium to supply can stock to Rexam
Constellium has been selected to supply can stock to Rexam, and will support Rexam’s strategic decision to convert all the can production lines of their two Spanish plants – La Selva and Valdemorillo – from steel to aluminium as part of this agreement.
“We are delighted to support Rexam in its substitution process from steel to aluminium. Packaging, in particular can stock, is a bedrock of Constellium’s portfolio.” commented Laurent Musy, President of Constellium’s Packaging and Automotive Rolled Products business unit. “By partnering with Rexam to convert its can lines in Spain, Europe’s second largest can market, Constellium will contribute to growing the share of aluminium use in beverage cans in Europe, currently at 79%,” he added.
Constellium expects more man makers across Europe to convert their production lines from steel to aluminium in future, partyl due to the fact that it can be endlessly recycled and contributes to the reduction of freight loads and fuel costs.
