Ardagh Group Opens New Facility in Brazil
Ardagh Group is delighted to announce the opening of its new can ends facility in Manaus, Brazil. The new facility houses state-of-the-art production and inspection equipment with capacity to produce 12 million ends per day.
“This significant investment in Manaus strengthens Ardagh Group’s position in the Brazilian market place, and complements our beverage can production facilities in Jacarei and Alagoinhas” said Augusto Seoane, Operations Director Ardagh Metal Beverage Brazil. “The new facility allows us to support both existing and new customer requirements.”
Employing a team of more than 80 people, the new facility consolidates the company’s position as a leading producer of beverage cans and ends in Brazil, serving a growing customer base. Universally recognised for its protective qualities, versatility and environmental credentials, metal is a permanent material meaning it can be infinitely recycled without loss of quality.
