Anheuser-Busch InBev plans to invest US$10m in one of its US facilities, which will boost its ability to produce “innovative” packaging.

The investment is being made at the group's Williamsburg brewery, in Virginia, and will expand the site's packaging operations and production needs, the company said today (5 December). The brewery, which opened in 1972, has seen around $39m of investment in the past two years, the brewer said. 

“This (latest) investment includes the addition of a slim package to one of our existing can lines, which will further enhance our ability to offer new and innovative packages for our consumers,” said Pete Kraemer, A-B's supply VP & head brewmaster. The upgrades will also increase the energy and water efficiencies of the site's operations, the company said. 

The brewery serves the states of Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Kentucky, Georgia and the District of Columbia.  It produces more than 40 different Anheuser-Busch beers, including the company's flagship brands, Budweiser and Bud Light.

In year-to-date results, announced in October, A-B InBev reported a single-digit rise in net profits and sales.
