As part of the expansion, the company is investing around $30m in the manufacturing facility in Clinton, South Carolina.

"The Clinton site, its management team and the skilled and reliable workforce, made it an easy decision to help grow the Southern U.S. corridor for many of the products we manufacture globally, and to leverage the unique capabilities of the Clinton site."

Work under the expansion includes the addition of 36,000ft2 space to the existing facility, which offers highly engineered component products and printing for the electronics, automotive, consumer battery, and beverage markets.

Majority of the construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.

Meanwhile, CCL Industries also announced plans to invest in a new plant in Clinton, North Carolina, which will produce aluminum slugs used in the impact extrusion process to make aerosol cans, tubes and bottles for consumer packaged goods companies.

The facility will be jointly owned by CCL and Rheinfelden Semis, a German producer of aluminum slugs.

CCL and Rheinfelden will initially invest around $18m in the construction of the plant, which will be capable of producing 25,000 tons by 2018.
