Ball Corporation inaugurated their first plant in Mexico, with an investing of US$320 million. The plant is located in the Municipality of Guadalupe, Nuevo Leon, occupies a 41,000 square meters surface and is expected to generate 400 direct jobs.
The company, based in Broomfield, Colorado, will have two product lines: one for metallic packaging and the other for beverages and foods, since their main customers are brewers and carbonated beverage producers, stated Daniel W. Fisher, President of the Beverage Packaging Division of Ball in North America, during the inauguration of the plant at Finsa Industrial Park. Ball is leader in producing cans for beverages, foods and sprays, but they also supply instruments and sensors, and microwave technology, among other products and services for the aerospace industry.
