The plant is scheduled to begin production in late 2022 and is expected to create nearly 180 manufacturing jobs when fully operational.
Ball plans to invest nearly $290m in its North Las Vegas facility over several years. The plant will supply a range of can sizes.
The company says it chose the North Las Vegas location due to its proximity to customer can-filling investments, increasing regional demand, the infrastructure in place, the regional labor base and the cooperation of state and local officials.
"Our new North Las Vegas plant is Ball's latest investment to serve accelerating demand for our portfolio of infinitely recyclable aluminum containers," said Kathleen Pitre, president, Ball beverage packaging North & Central America.
"The new plant is supported by numerous long-duration contracts for committed volume with our strategic global partners and regional customers and will enable us to serve customer and consumer needs for more sustainable aluminum beverage packaging while furthering our Drive for 10 vision."
