Ball Corporation plans to build a new US aluminium beverage can plant in Nevada.
The multi-line beverage can plant to be build in North Las Vegas is scheduled to begin production in late 2022 and is expected to create nearly 180 manufacturing jobs when fully operational.
„Our new North Las Vegas plant is Ball’s latest investment to serve accelerating demand for our portfolio of infinitely recyclable aluminium containers,” said Kathleen Pitre, president of Ball beverage packaging North & Central America. “The new plant is supported by numerous long-duration contracts for committed volume with our strategic global partners and regional customers and will enable us to serve customer and consumer needs for more sustainable aluminium beverage packaging.”
USD290m investment in new beverage can plant
Ball plans to invest nearly USD290m in its North Las Vegas facility over multiple years. The plant will supply a range of innovative can sizes to a variety of beverage customers. Infinitely recyclable and economically valuable, aluminium cans, bottles and cups enable a truly circular economy in which materials can be and actually are used again and again.
Ball chose the North Las Vegas location for its new facility due to its proximity to customer can-filling investments, increasing regional demand, the infrastructure in place, the regional labour base and the cooperation of state and local officials.
