Canpack to build US aluminum beverage can body manufacturing plant in Muncie
The project represents a $380m investment in Delaware County and the State of Indiana and will create around 345 jobs by 2023. This has the potential to expand to 425 jobs and a $490m investment by 2025.
The site will be located on 139 acres of land on the southwest corner of South Cowan and West Fuson Roads in Monroe Township in Muncie. Construction of the 862,000-square-foot facility is expected to begin in mid-2021. Plant operation is slated to commence in the fourth quarter of 2022.
Canpack broke ground on its first US operation a year ago in Olyphant, Pa., and as part of its overall US expansion, CANPACK will invest a further $10m in this first site to increase its end-making capacity.
Over the last 30 years, Canpack has grown from a single steel food can manufacturing site in Poland to a multinational packaging manufacturer with nearly 8,000 employees and 28 manufacturing sites located in Europe, South America, India, the Middle East, Africa, and the US.
