Pernod Ricard USA invests in first RTD canning line
Pernod Ricard USA will invest $22m in creating its first-ever RTD canning line, located at its Fort Smith plant in Arkansas: boosting its ability to bring RTDs to market swiftly.
The plant already produces several Pernod Ricard spirits, including Kahlua Coffee Liqueur and Seagram’s Gin. The new investment will add canning capabilities: ‘helping accelerate growth for the company, add more US jobs and create a spillover of economic benefits for the local community.’
“This investment is an incredible step in strengthening our manufacturing footprint in Fort Smith,” said Pierre Joncourt, Senior Vice President, Pernod Ricard North America. “The high-speed canning line will be instrumental in increasing our production capabilities and swiftly bringing our premium, bar-quality RTDs to market.”
