Crown Holdings has announced the construction of a new beverage can plant on its existing food can manufacturing site in Casablanca, Morocco.

Operational in late 2009, the new plant will produce two-piece aluminum cans with an initial capacity of 700 million cans a year. The facility is being designed to accommodate the future installation of additional production lines as market demand grows. This investment is part of the company's 2009 capital programme.

The new beverage plant in Casablanca will expand Crown's presence in Morocco. Crown subsidiary Carnaud Maroc S.A. is the market leader for fish and vegetable cans, paint cans and crown closures. Founded more than 70 years ago, Carnaud Maroc operates one large plant in Casablanca, and will open a second plant in Agadir in August of this year.
