News Crown to Open New Aluminum Can Manufacturing Plant in Nevada

Beverage can producer Crown Holdings will be expanding its production capacity with a new aluminum beverage can manufacturing facility in Mesquite, Nevada.

Announcement of the new production plant comes two weeks after Vobev, a Utah-based can manufacturing company announced details about its new can manufacturing facility that is due to open by the end of this year in Salt Lake City. There has been an ongoing shortage of beverage cans since well before the pandemic. Last fall Ball Corp., the world’s largest manufacturer of cans, said that the company was short 10 billion cans in 2020. Last year, domestic beer in cans grew 11.4% to 12.7 million barrels, according to Beer Marketer’s Insights and now make up 74% of total volume share, up from 58 share 10 years ago.
