The Polish/European can manufacturer Canpack has announced plans to build an aluminum can plant in Muncie, Indiana, making an initial investment of $380 million and hiring 345 workers within two years.
Poland-based CANPACK says it will build its second U.S. facility in Delaware County with the potential to expand its operations to 425 people and invest a total of $490 million by 2025.
Construction of the 862,000-square-foot facility is expected to begin in the middle of this year with manufacturing to begin in the fourth quarter of 2022.
CANPACK, which is part of Giorgi Global Holdings Inc., is a global manufacturer of aluminum beverage cans and packaging solutions for the food industry.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp., along with the Muncie-Delaware County Economic Development Alliance and the state of Indiana has offered CANPACK up to $4.7 million in conditional tax credits and up to $300,000 in conditional training grants.
This is the company’s second U.S. facility. CANPACK broke ground a year ago on its first U.S. facility in Pennsylvania.
