Amcor: Expansion of Bottle Capacity

Amcor Rigid Plastics Ltd., Melbourne, Australia, a large producer of rigid plastic packaging, announces a major expansion of extrusion blow molded PP bottle capacity in the Mid- and Southwest of the USA and Canada in response to strong market demand for packaging for food and nutritional supplements. The expansion of production facilities enables Amcor to shift its manufacturing footprint closer to key customers to deliver key sustainability advantages including improved logistics and reduced transportation costs.

The new capacity is primarily for production of multilayer polypropylene (PP) containers – a product line acquired in August 2010 from Ball Plastics Packaging Americas – along with HDPE containers with PCR content for personal care and household uses. As part of its growth strategy in the food segment, Amcor also recently added eat-set PET capacity (stretch blow molding).
