Turning a brilliant idea into world-leading packaging is a challenge that is well within the capability of the development team at Ardagh’s glass production plant at Limmared in Sweden. The company that produced the award winning Absolut Unique bottle has in 2013 pushed the frontiers of glass packaging even further with the launch of Absolut Originality.
Ardagh Group announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Verallia North America (“VNA”), following approval of a consent order by the Commissioners of the Federal Trade Commission. Following the acquisition of VNA and the divestment of six former Anchor Glass plants, Ardagh’s North America Glass Division will generate annual revenues of approximately US$2 billion from 16 glass manufacturing facilities, employing 5,000 people.
