Crown Holdings will build a new beverage can manufacturing facility in Henry County, Virginia, its third greenfield beverage can manufacturing investment in North America over the last five years.
The state-of-the-art plant will supply beverage cans to the company’s customers serving a variety of categories including sparkling water, energy drinks, carbonated soft drinks, teas, functional beverages, hard seltzers, beer and cocktails.
The plant’s geographic location expands Crown’s North American supply network to address the growing market for standard and specialty beverage cans.
“This investment further demonstrates Crown’s commitment to support its customers in meeting the increased demand for aluminium beverage cans,” said Timothy J. Donahue, President and CEO of Crown Holdings.
“The Henry County plant will give Crown a stronger position in the specialty can market, while allowing Crown to better serve the needs of customers and consumers for more sustainable packaging.”
Located in Commonwealth Crossing Business Centre, the 355,000 square foot facility is expected to begin operations in the second quarter of 2022 and will create 126 new jobs.
