Ball Corporation has announced that plans to build a one-line beverage can and end manufacturing plant in Asunción, Paraguay, and to add capacity in its Buenos Aires, Argentina, facility. The investment in Argentina is the third in two years. These investments will allow the company to serve the growing beverage can market in Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina, and to support various customer demands with multiple can sizes. The Asunción plant is expected to begin production in the fourth quarter of 2019 and its capacity is contracted under long-term agreements.

Mr Carlos Pires, president, beverage packaging South America said that "The economy is growing and demand for aluminum beverage packaging is increasing in Paraguay and surrounding countries, as more people are consuming beer and other refreshing drinks and more customers are converting to more sustainable, infinitely recyclable beverage cans." He said that "In Argentina, cans will continue to grow and volumes will likely double from 2016 to 2019. These investments will allow us to broaden our geographic reach into a new and growing market, as well as be closer to our customers in the area, which aligns with our long-term vision for growth."

Ball Corporation supplies innovative, sustainable packaging solutions for beverage, food and household products customers, as well as aerospace and other technologies and services primarily for the U.S. government. Ball Corporation and its subsidiaries employ 18,450 people worldwide and 2016 net sales were USD 9.1 billion.
