Plastic cap and closure manufacturer Corvaglia Group has announced it will invest $25 million to construct its first manufacturing facility in the US.
The facility will be built in Newnan, Georgia, and will complement the brand’s existing factories in Eschlikon, Switzerland and Ixtlahuaca, Mexico, which produce a range of plastic caps and closures for PET containers.
Corvaglia estimates that the facility will be operational by the end of 2018, and the new facility will utilise the Group’s high-speed digital printing technology to produce products for the North American beverage market.
Corvaglia Closures USA President and General Manager James B. Fisher said: “This is a major strategic step in Corvaglia’s history that positions us well to serve the U.S. market.
“The Newnan, Georgia location positions us well for operational success, and the sense of community aligns with our core values.”
Newnan is located in Coweta County, and AL Smith, chairman of the Coweta County Board of Commissioners said: “We are extremely proud that Corvaglia Group has selected Coweta County for its first U.S. manufacturing facility.
“Coweta County is always looking for innovators in their field and Corvaglia certainly fits what we are seeking to make our county a better place.
“We look forward to working with the Group in providing quality jobs for the people of Coweta County.”
