Crown Holdings Inc., a leading global supplier of rigid packaging products, will establish its aluminum beverage can manufacturing facility in Mesquite, Nevada. The project is expected to create 126 new jobs.
Located in the Mesquite Technology and Commerce Center, the 355,000 square foot facility is expected to begin operations in the second quarter of 2023. According to company officials, this two line state-of-the-art plant will supply standard and specialty beverage cans to the company's customers serving a variety of categories, including carbonated soft drinks, sparkling water, energy drinks, hard seltzers, beer and ready-to-drink cocktails.
"This investment, underpinned by long-term customer contracts, continues to demonstrate Crown's commitment to meet the increased demand for aluminum beverage cans," said Timothy J. Donahue, President and CEO.
This facility improves the company's ability not only to serve existing customers in the Western United States, but also to support growth of new beverage introductions in aluminum cans, officials noted.
"Consumers continue to seek beverage options predominantly in cans and are increasingly aware of the sustainability benefits of the aluminum can,” Donahue added. “On behalf of Crown, I would like to thank our many partners for their coordinated efforts in this initiative, including the Nevada Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED), Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance, Mesquite City Public Works and Development Services, and Cody Law and Colton Teerlink of Citywide Consultants who served as advisors to the City of Mesquite, Nevada."
With world headquarters located in Yardley, Pennsylvania, Crown Holdings, Inc., through its subsidiaries, is a leading global supplier of rigid packaging products to consumer marketing companies, as well as transit and protective packaging products, equipment and services to a broad range of end markets.
