Ardagh Group has recently completed the conversion of its Rugby (UK) beverage can manufacturing plant from steel to aluminium.
Ardagh Metal Beverage CEO Oliver Graham said: “The conversion of the Rugby plant has further enhanced Ardagh’s manufacturing footprint.
“Operating two highly-efficient aluminium beverage can plants in the UK, at Wrexham and Rugby, supported by our recent investment in our Deeside ends plant, positions Ardagh to offer leading beverage customers greater choice and flexibility in future.

The consistent pursuit of market-leading innovation, quality and customer service, backed by investment in our people and processes, has underpinned our rapid growth over the past two decades.
