The company also noted that food and beverage firms can purchase from a range of American-made glass bottles and jars that come in different sizes, colours and styles, with the flexibility to order less than truckload (LTL) quantities.

Earlier this month, Ardagh Group revealed its plan to permanently close its glass container production facility in Milford, Massachusetts.

Employing 250 people, the facility is expected to close on or after 31 March.

The group’s other glass facilities in North America will serve affected customers.

The decision was taken in view of decreasing demand in the North American mass beer market.
