France-based company Saverglass has started production at its first North American factory, in Jalisco, Mexico. The $120m facility has created 400 jobs producing high end and premium glass bottles.

Saverglass specializes in manufacturing luxury glassware used for wine, spirits, perfume and cosmetics. It already operates production and decoration facilities in France and the United Arab Emirates.

The new factory in Jalisco will focus specifically on serving the Americas. The site was chosen based on its convenient location for shipping to the US, Canada, Central America, the Caribbean and throughout Mexico. Production commenced in June.

With the new factory, Saverglass will increase production volume by 120 million units per year, eventually bringing overall annual production to 720 million bottles. It will add 400 new jobs to Saverglass’ existing 3,000 global employees.

Catering to the US

Loïc Quentin de Gromard, CEO of Saverglass, said: “We are very excited to now fully cater to the United States, the world’s leading market for the consumption of premium spirits. The new factory is a reflection of Saverglass’ dedication to providing exceptional bottling services to its customers.”

Saverglass provides glassware for brands like LVMH, Pernod Ricard, Bacardi Martini, Beam Suntory, Campari, Brown Forman, Treasury Wine Estates and Cristal Roederer.

It manufactures 102 different types of bottles for spirits, 95 for still wine, 15 for sparkling wine and 53 for perfume and cosmetics.

“Quality, creativity, innovation and flexibility [are] four key strengths that have enabled Saverglass to establish its standout positioning as a pioneer over the years and to become the global specialist for the production and decoration of high-end and luxury glass bottles for spirits, fine wine, vintage champagne and perfume brands,”​ said Quentin de Gromard.
