CCL Container Expands Canadian Plant

November 22, 2005

CCL Container is expanding its Penetang, Ontario, Canada plant this year by adding two high-speed production lines. The first line started up service in January and the second one is slated for June. This brings the plant’s total number of lines to 10, making it the largest impact extrusion container facility in North America. Both lines will produce aluminum containers ranging in diameter from 53- 66mm and up to 235mm in height. In addition, both lines were reconfigured to accommodate full body-shaping capabilities.
“We are nearly doubling our high-speed capacity with this expansion, which reflects both increased demand by our customers and a major commitment on our part to remain in the industry forefront,” commented Ed Martin, vice president of sales and marketing for CCL Container. “The added capacity will help us meet our 2005 production schedule while we continue to innovate in the areas of design and functionality.
