US packagings manufacturer mulling Poland for new aerosol can factory


Crown Holdings, a NYSE-listed manufacturer of packaging products for consumer goods, has selected Poland and Slovakia as proposed locations for a new European factory of aerosol spray cans, Puls Biznesu has learnt. The value of the project is €12-15m. The plant will initially employ 40 people and ultimately 100. It is expected to start operations in 2014-2015. Crown Holdings said it was premature to comment on the project.

The US firm reportedly expects to receive government support worth 40-50% of the investment’s value.

Crown Holdings has two manufacturing plants in Poland. One, in Goleniow (Zachodniopomorskie voivodship), makes metal closures; the other, in Pruszcz Gdanski (Pomorskie), produces packaging products for the food industry.

The Philadelphia-based company has operations in 41 countries and employs over 20,700 people worldwide.
