Swiss plastic cap and closure technology solutions provider Corvaglia Group is set to open its first manufacturing facility in the US on 5 April.
Located in Newnan, Georgia, the new manufacturing facility will complement the company’s existing operations in Eschlikon, Switzerland, and Ixtlahuaca, Mexico.
Corvaglia Group announced its plans to establish the facility in February last year with a $25m investment. The expansion is expected to create a range of advanced manufacturing jobs in Coweta County.
Commenting during the announcement, Corvaglia Closures USA president and general manager James Fisher said: “This is a major strategic step in Corvaglia’s history that positions us well to serve the US market. The Newnan, Georgia location positions us well for operational success, and the sense of community aligns with our core values.”
The company will manufacture lightweight one-piece caps and closures using in-house moulds at the new facility for the North American beverage market.
Corvaglia USA also offers Swiss-engineered high-speed digital printing with 720dpi high-resolution print quality through a single-pass cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (CMYK) process for short-run customisation and branding opportunities.
Established in 1991, Corvaglia produces and supplies 100% recyclable plastic caps and closures for PET (polyethylene terephthalate) containers to serve its customers in the food and beverage industry. It currently employs approximately 275 people worldwide.
The company claims that its lightweight technologies are suitable for packaging bottled waters, carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks, isotonics, juices, teas, dairy and edible oils. It also offers customisation of one-piece closure technologies for its customers.
