Rexam to Build New Beverage Can Plants in Russia

Rexam has announced that it is to build its second beverage can making plant in Russia.

The new plant in Russia is in Chelyabinsk in the Urals. Customers have already made important can filling investments in the Central and Eastern area of Russia which has a population of more than 60 million people. Customers are expected to invest further to meet the significant and growing consumption which today is being satisfied by filled cans supplied from outside the Urals.

The greenfield aluminium can plant will consist of one production line with an annual capacity of 800 million cans and will be able to swing between 0.33-litre and 50-litre can manufacture. It is due to come on stream in early 2008 and represents an investment of some USD73m  mainly in 2007.

Commenting, Lars Emilson, Rexam's Chief Executive, said: "This is significant investment to capture growth. Taken together with the recent investment in the new plant for Red Bull, the acquisition in Egypt and further conversion of lines to new sizes, itdemonstrates that we are firmly committed to growing alongside our customers and consolidating our leadership position in the global beverage can industry."
