    Ball Corporation has planned to construct a new beverage can manufacturing facility in Asunción, Paraguay. One-line facility is expected to start production in the fourth quarter of 2019 and its capacity is contracted under long-term agreements.

    Carlos Pires, president of beverage packaging South America, said: "The economy is growing and demand for aluminium beverage packaging is increasing in Paraguay and surrounding countries, as more people are consuming beer and other refreshing drinks and more customers are converting to more sustainable, infinitely recyclable beverage cans.”

    Ball also announced its plans to add capacity in its Buenos Aires, Argentina, facility. The investment is the third in the region in two years.

    He commented: "In Argentina, cans will continue to grow and volumes will likely double from 2016 to 2019. These investments will allow us to broaden our geographic reach into a new and growing market, as well as be closer to our customers in the area, which aligns with our long-term vision for growth."

    Last August, the company announced that it would cease production at its Birmingham, Alabama, Chatsworth, California, and Longview, Texas, beverage packaging plants in 2018.
