Recorp Aluminium opens plant in NZ

Recorp Aluminium, recognised as New Zealand’s leading innovator in can manufacturing, is set to open its state-of-the-art facility in South Auckland, funded by top experts in the beverage container industry. 

The company’s founder and chairman, former Air New Zealand CEO Rob Fyfe, anticipates that the $100 million-plus project will achieve financial stability by its second year of operation.

This advanced can manufacturing plant, featuring the latest technology, aims to transform the beverage packaging sector in New Zealand. Operations are scheduled to begin in early September 2024, despite a five-month delay due to a site relocation.

Recorp Aluminium was established with the mission to modernise the packaging industry for both businesses and consumers. By utilising cutting-edge technology, Recorp specialises in producing versatile and efficient aluminium cans that cater to a diverse range of beverage packaging needs.

Additionally, the company has announced Bruce Parton as its first CEO. Parton, who previously collaborated with Fyfe at Air New Zealand, has already started contributing significantly to the company since assuming his role last month. Fyfe expressed his confidence in Parton, stating, “Having worked with Bruce personally, I know the value he will bring to the business, and he has hit the ground running since he took up the role last month.”

Alongside Parton, Recorp’s leadership includes some of Australasia’s top beverage container specialists, such as General Manager Steve Lacey and Plant Manager Grant Nicholson.
