WCN Editorial Team 1 Apr 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Metal Container Corporation (MCC), a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch, has started construction on a $175m aluminium bottle line at its facility in Jacksonville, Florida.

The new move is part of the company’s strategy to improve production of the Budweiser and Bud Light aluminium bottles.

Anheuser-Busch has been producing aluminium bottles since 2013. Jacksonville will be the second MCC facility to produce them. Anheuser-Busch has also operated a brewery in Jacksonville since 1969.

The project is expected to create about 75 new jobs at the facility.

MCC president Dave Taylor said: “Since it launched in early 2014, the aluminium bottle has become overwhelmingly popular with beer drinkers, and we are proud to break ground on a new line in Jacksonville that will further expand production of the popular bottles, while adding jobs.

“The innovative, high-demand aluminium bottles will be enjoyed by fans as the 2016 baseball season and the busy spring and summer beer-selling seasons begin.”
