Ardagh partners with O’Connor Brewing

Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, a business unit of Ardagh Group, has partnered with O’Connor Brewing Company to manufacture all of its 12oz long-neck glass bottles. The partnership connects one of Coastal Virginia’s very first craft breweries with one of the United States’ leading glass container manufacturers for the craft beer industry.

The 12oz long-neck amber beer bottles for O’Connor Brewing Company are designed and manufactured in the U.S. by Ardagh using 100 percent and endlessly recyclable amber glass.

"O'Connor Brewing Company has been brewing and bottling beer for distribution throughout Virginia and the surrounding markets for 10 years,” said Zach Volkman, VP of Operations at O’Connor Brewing. “When we were in the market for a new bottle supplier last fall, Ardagh was very attractive to us as a business partner. Ardagh was competitively priced while offering top-notch quality standards. Their nearby facility in Wilson, North Carolina is able to provide us with great operational flexibility with reliable and short-notice shipments when we need them. Additionally, the close proximity of their facility helps to reduce our supply chain carbon footprint and promote our company’s green initiative.”

Ardagh enjoys collaborating with craft brewers like O’Connor Brewing Company to create glass beer bottles that have great shelf appeal and brand differentiation in a premium, sustainable package.

“O’Connor Brewing Company’s passion for supplying quality and consistency in their beer aligns well with Ardagh’s dedication to manufacturing high-quality glass packaging that showcases and protects the integrity of their craft beer,” said John T Shaddox, Chief Commercial Officer for Ardagh’s North American Glass business unit. “Ardagh is proud to partner with O’Connor Brewing Company to showcase great craft beer in American made glass bottles.”

For more than 125 years, Ardagh has been producing 100 percent and endlessly recyclable glass bottles in the U.S. and offers a wide selection of glass beer bottles in a variety of colors, sizes, styles and finishes. Ardagh is dedicated to the craft beer market with capabilities and resources to grow with brands every step of the way.
