Global Closure Systems has completed its plant expansion in Mexico. The company began the expansion of its Zeller Plastik Mexico factory mid-2012.

The production surface of the plant has increased by over 30% and the warehouse area is upgraded with an additional 25% of floor space. GCS can now operate up to 40 injection machines and over 30 machines for its complementary process station.

"Our skilled and dedicated teams are fully committed to achieve high customer service levels, world-class quality as well as continuous innovation of product and process," said Sandy Almirall, GCS vice-president of Americas region. "We want our customers to be confident that GCS will continue to support them by making the best closure systems for their brands.

"This expansion allows GCS to meet the end-market's rising demand in the Americas region. Global Closure Systems plans to further expand its manufacturing operations in Mexico by 2017."

Global Closure Systems is one of the leaders in the Mexican plastic caps and closures industry, with strong positions on the household, food, personal care, wine & spirits and the beverage sports cap markets.
