Crown to expand its UK footprint with new beverage can plant

Crown Holdings is to build a new beverage can facility in Peterborough.

Beverage cans are the world’s most sustainable and recycled beverage packaging option and are increasingly preferred by customers and consumers alike. A growing proportion of new beverages in the U.K. is being introduced in cans, and this new facility demonstrates Crown’s commitment to meeting expanding customer requirements.

Construction on the Peterborough plant will begin during the second quarter of 2022 with the first line expected to commence production during the second quarter of 2023. Additional lines are planned in a phased manner to reach over three billion units of annual capacity. The size of the facility, which will employ 280 people, will be 625,000 square feet.
