Novelis makes $50 million investment to install beverage can coating line in Brazil

Published January 3, 2012
Novelis, the world's largest producer of rolled aluminum, will invest approximately $50 million to install a coating line for beverage can end stock at its operations in Pindamonhangaba, Brazil.

"This expansion is the most recent step in an ongoing program to expand our leadership position in supplying Brazil and South America with high-quality beverage can sheet for this growing region," said Phil Martens, president and chief executive for Novelis Inc.

Novelis, the leading supplier of can body stock and can end stock in South America, forecasts the demand for aluminum beverage cans in the region to grow by seven percent per year until 2020.

"This investment will help round out our can sheet offering for our customers in the region and allow us to keep pace with the surging demand for our products," said Marco Palmieri, senior vice president of Novelis Inc. and president, Novelis South America. "The new line will allow us to increase our capacity to meet customer demand while shortening delivery lead times."

The new coating line, which will be fully integrated with in-line levelling and trimming using the latest technology, is expected to come on stream in late 2013. The line will have the capacity to process 100,000 metric tons of aluminum sheet per year.

The Pindamonhangaba facility is an integrated aluminum rolling and recycling complex located in the state of Sao Paulo. The plant is currently in the midst of a $300 million expansion of its rolling mill and a $32 million expansion of its aluminum recycling capacity.
