Amcor Rigid Plastics: Major Expansion in Orlando
Amcor Rigid Plastics, producer of rigid plastic packaging, made a major expansion of its southeastern U.S. bottle manufacturing operation in response to strong market demand for beverage and pharmaceutical packaging. The USD 20 million expansion in Orlando,FL also enables Amcor to centralize preform manufacturing and warehousing while delivering key sustainability advantages including improved logistics and shipping efficiencies.
Amcor recently relocated from an existing 168,000 sq ft plant near the Florida Turnpike to a new leased 500,000 sq ft facility within the Airport Industrial Park of Orlando, just a few miles from the former location. The investment funded major infrastructure work to convert an unfinished shell structure into a functional space for manufacturing, warehousing, and offices. The new facility - already up and running - is for production of hot fill and cold fill PET bottles for beverages such as sports drinks and orange juice, along with HDPE pharmaceutical containers.
