Rexam, the global consumer packaging group and the world's No.1 beverage can maker, has announced that it is to build a new beverage can making plant in Brazil, to meet increased demand.

The new plant will be in Cuiabá, in the state of Mato Grosso, in the centre-west of the country. The region has the fastest growing GDP levels in Brazil and, with a geographically dispersed population of nearly 13m people, the can is regarded as the optimal packaging solution for beverage distribution.

Commenting on the new plant, Lars Emilson, Rexam's Chief Executive said: "The project is a continuation of Rexam's strategy to increase our presence in this important market and will reinforce our competitive advantage in the region. It is an important step forward in an exciting market and it will strengthen our capability to serve our beverage can customers in South America."
