The company said the location complemented its "North American metal beverage packaging footprint" and would produce multiple can sizes. Due to start operations in the first half of 2016, the new facility has the majority of its capacity contracted under a long-term agreement.

"The demand for standard and speciality metal beer packaging continues to grow, and the Monterrey plant will allow us to expand our customer base and product portfolio," said Daniel Fisher, president of North American metal beverage packaging at Ball.

"This returns-oriented growth project broadens our geographic reach into a new and growing market for Ball’s global metal beverage packaging business, which aligns with Ball’s ‘Drive for 10’ vision."

In December, Constellation Brands completed its US$300m acquisition of Anheuser-Busch InBev's glass production plant in Mexico with new JV partner Owens-Illinois.

Last year, Ball Corp announced US$40m plans for a new beverage can plant in Myanmar to support local demand growth.
