US-based Bway has purchased American beverage can maker Ball’s metal packaging plant in Hubbard, Ohio, for an undisclosed sum.

The deal also includes certain liabilities of the metal packaging business, which is involved in the production of certain general line, household products and specialty metal containers.

The Hubbard facility currently employs around 70 people. In 2006, Ball purchased the plant as part of its acquisition of US Can.

Bway president and CEO Ken Roessler said: "This business is an excellent fit with the company's core market, add-on acquisition strategy.

"In addition to sales growth, this acquisition provides added capacity to enable us to better serve our customers on a national basis."
