Global aluminium packaging company Ball Corporation has revealed plans to develop a new aluminium end manufacturing facility in Bowling Green, Kentucky, US.

Scheduled to commence production in early-2022, the new plant will serve the regional and national customers and supply infinitely recyclable and lightweight aluminium.

Ball has picked Bowling Green for the new facility considering its proximity to main distribution routes and existing supply chain partners.

The city is also close to its regional labour base and the cooperation of state, regional and local officials.

Ball aims to invest more in the facility over multiple years to install additional end modules.

The facility is expected to generate approximately 200 manufacturing jobs.

Ball Corporation North & Central America beverage packaging president Colin Gillis said: “Our new Bowling Green, Kentucky, facility will provide aluminium end supply to Ball’s expanding North American network of beverage can manufacturing plants.

“Bowling Green will join our industry-leading network of more than 20 North American plants, including two new beverage can manufacturing plants currently under construction in Glendale, Arizona, and Pittston, Pennsylvania, scheduled to start up in early and mid-2021, respectively.

“These investments will align our end production with our beverage can capacity investments, and are supported by numerous long-term customer contracts to serve the unprecedented demand for sustainable aluminium packaging while furthering Ball’s Drive for 10 vision for long-term success.”

Last September, Ball Corporation revealed plans to develop a new aluminium beverage packaging plant in Pittston, Pennsylvania, US.
