Ardagh Group announced today, following the recent completion of a significant investment project, it will now supply two additional beverage ends from its Deeside plant: the 200 B64 and the 202 CDL ends. This follows the conversion of its final 202 B64 module to the more sustainable 202 CDL end.
“Our goal is to remain a leading supplier of inherently sustainable packaging by continuously pursuing superior solutions,” said Oliver Graham, CEO Ardagh Metal Beverage. “This significant investment in Deeside strengthens Ardagh’s position in the market place and allows us greater flexibility in end sizes to support both existing and new customer requirements.”
The Deeside UK plant was established in 1988 to produce 206 diameter ring pull ends. In 1994, the plant converted to 202 B64 aluminium ends to support new can sizes and introduced the CDL end in 2010 for the first time. For the past decade, the plant sends zero waste to landfill.
Metal is a permanent material which can be infinitely recycled without loss of quality.
Universally recognised for its protective qualities, versatility and environmental credentials, metal has the highest recycling rates of all packaging materials in Europe, thus effectively contributing to the fundamental principles of a circular economy.
