Packaging company Ardagh Group has completed the conversion of its beverage can manufacturing plant in Rugby, England from a steel to an aluminium facility.
The conversion now means that Ardagh operates two aluminium beverage can production plants in the UK, as the company also manages an aluminium can factory in Wrexham.
Ardagh claims that the conversion will further enhance its product portfolio as it will allow the company to offer its beverage customers increased choice in the future.
This conversion further enhances Ardagh’s beverage can production capabilities, following the opening of a new beverage can end facility in Brazil earlier this month.
Oliver Graham, CEO of Ardagh Metal Beverage said: “The conversion of the Rugby plant has further enhanced Ardagh’s manufacturing footprint.
“Operating two highly-efficient aluminium beverage can plants in the UK, at Wrexham and Rugby, supported by our recent investment in our Deeside ends plant, positions Ardagh to offer leading beverage customers greater choice and flexibility in future.”
