Crown to build new can plant in Mesquite, Nevada
Crown Holdings’ new South Western beverage can manufacturing facility in the US will be located in Mesquite, Nevada.
This two line state-of-the-art plant will supply standard and speciality beverage cans to the Company’s customers serving a variety of categories, including carbonated soft drinks, sparkling water, energy drinks, hard seltzers, beer and ready-to-drink cocktails.
This facility improves the Company’s ability not only to serve existing customers in the Western United States, but also to support growth of new beverage introductions in aluminium cans.
“This investment, underpinned by long-term customer contracts, continues to demonstrate Crown’s commitment to meet the increased demand for aluminum beverage cans,” said Timothy J. Donahue, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Consumers continue to seek beverage options predominantly in cans and are increasingly aware of the sustainability benefits of the aluminum can.
“On behalf of Crown, I would like to thank our many partners for their coordinated efforts in this initiative, including the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development, Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance, Mesquite City Public Works and Development Services, and Cody Law and Colton Teerlink of Citywide Consultants who served as advisors to the City of Mesquite, Nevada.”
Located in the Mesquite Technology and Commerce Center, the 355,000 square foot facility is expected to begin operations in the second quarter of 2023 and will create 126 new jobs.
