Amcor opens new Auckland beverage can plant

Beverage can manufacturer Amcor Australasia has opened a $40m aluminium manufacturing plant in south Auckland, New Zealand, to double its output.

Beverage can manufacturer Amcor Australasia has opened a $40m aluminium manufacturing plant in south Auckland, New Zealand, to double its output.

Installation of the new line enables the company to access an eight colour print process, increased embossing capabilities and the addition to the range of the 500ml can.

The facility in Wiri produces currently around 300 million cans a year, accounting for nearly 70% of New Zealand’s beverage can production, which Amcor said will double once the new line becomes fully operational.

Nigel Garrard, Amcor Australasia and packaging distribution managing director, said the additional capability is brought to New Zealand’s energy drink, soft drink, ready to drink (RTD) and beer markets.

Amcor is a global packaging company with five operating divisions in 42 countries spread across Australasia, North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia.
