Ball Corporation invested EUR 45mn in a new production line and production and business expansion in Serbia. The investment contributes to the creation of 40 new jobs in the Belgrade plant, one of the largest exporters in the country, placing 70 percent of its output in more than 20 markets.
Ball supplies large international producers of beer, soft beverages, water, as well as smaller producers who increasingly opt for cans as packaging, since they are infinitely recyclable.
Ball’s beverage plant in Belgrade is the largest US Greenfield investment in Serbia. In addition to can production in line with global standards, the company has been focused on public education regarding recycling, in cooperation with the Recan Foundation and numerous partners, for more than a decade now.
