Ardagh Group has installed a new DWI two piece food can line at its plant in Znojmo in the Czech Republic. This new investment of €10m in state of the art two piece DWI can making equipment introduces this modern technology and its’ subsequent benefits to this important growing region in Europe.
This investment will enable Ardagh to increase sales of DWI cans to the pet food and human food markets in Czech, Poland, Austria and Hungary. Commercial production will start at the end of the year.
Commenting on this development, Tim Clarke, Sales Director for Metal Food Europe, said:
“We are excited to be making this strategically important investment in what is now our fourth DWI plant in Europe. In these challenging economic times it is essential that we continue to invest in processes and technologies that deliver sustainable economic benefits to our customers. DWI is a more efficient can making process which offers the potential for further down gauging of material, bringing both financial and environmental benefits. Our recent experiences confirm that the DWI can is the can for the future.”
