Trivium Packaging will invest $40 million (€35.1 million) in new assets at two of its manufacturing plants to expand the production of aluminium aerosol cans and beverage bottles.
New lines will be installed in the Youngstown, Ohio, and Itupeva, Brazil facilities, adding new capabilities and significantly growing capacity in 2023.
Trivium said the initiative is a direct result of long-term commitments from standing customers in the aerosol and beverage markets – companies that understand the potential of metal packaging and share in Trivium’s sustainability mission.
“This $40 million (€35.1 million) expansion of production in our Youngstown and Itupeva facilities will help us, and our customers, meet the fast-growing demand in the aerosol and beverage market for infinitely recyclable cans and bottles,” said Jens Irion, Trivium’s America president.
“Trivium’s sustainability standards play a vital role in the future of our planet, and we are incredibly grateful to have lasting partners who contribute to a circular economy by committing to the use of 100% recyclable aluminium materials.”
Trivium’s Itupeva and Youngstown facilities are two of the three Trivium facilities in the Americas that produce aerosol cans and aluminium bottles. The company also produces aerosol and beverage packaging in Europe, recently investing to expand its offering in the beverage market specifically.
In recent years, Trivium has seen increased demand for its sustainable metal packaging solutions in this sector, as companies realise the benefits of the aluminium container.
