Rexam has created a new division, Beverage Can Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA), which will include its current plants in Turkey, Egypt, India and China.
These changes will take effect from 1 January 2013. The new division will be separated from the current Beverage Can Europe and Asia, with that division becoming Beverage Can Europe.
As part of these changes, Rexam has appointed two directors to head these divisions. Craig Jones, currently Rexam’s general director, Russia, will become sector director of Beverage Can AMEA.
After 29 years with Rexam, Tomas Sjölin, currently sector director Beverage Can Europe & Asia, will retire in early 2013, and Iain Percival, currently Rexam’s group enterprise risk director, will become sector director for Beverage Can Europe.
