Ardagh meets need for innovative beverage can tabs and ends
Ardagh’s beverage can end and tab plant in Valparaíso, Chile, will be increasing production to keep up with demand for innovative, eye-catching beverage can packaging.
Increasingly, leading beverage companies are choosing to utilise colorful graphics for ends and tabs, complimenting the full surface space of the can body used to showcase their brand.
The plant, which is ISO–9001:2015 certified, a third-party designation bestowed upon high quality and environmentally-focused manufacturing organisations, will be increasing production by approximately 10%. The new production will be available in the third quarter of 2019.
Claude Marbach, CEO, Ardagh Metal – North America, said the investment in the plant’s people and capabilities is a testament to the focus on quality and customer satisfaction by the Ardagh Valparaíso team. “We’re very proud to increase Valparaíso’s production capabilities, further positioning the plant as a world-class source of innovative, eye-catching tabs and ends,“ he says. “We are providing leading beverage organisations the best in brand-building packaging, enabling differentiation on retail shelves with the inherent environmental benefits of aluminum cans.”
