Glass producer Ardagh Group Glass North America has agreed to produce bottles for US-based O’Connor Brewing Company.

As part of this agreement, Ardagh will supply 12oz long-neck glass amber beer bottles.

Ardagh will use 100% recyclable amber glass for O’Connor Brewing’s bottles. Production and design works will be carried out in the US.

O’Connor Brewing Operations vice-president Zach Volkman said: “O’Connor Brewing Company has been brewing and bottling beer for distribution throughout Virginia and the surrounding markets for ten years.

“When we were in the market for a new bottle supplier last fall, Ardagh was very attractive to us as a business partner. Ardagh was competitively priced while offering top-notch quality standards.

“Their nearby facility in Wilson, North Carolina is able to provide us with great operational flexibility with reliable and short-notice shipments when we need them.”
