Leading maker of infinitely recyclable aluminium packaging Ball Corporation intends to begin construction of a new production facility at Pilsen Digital Park in the spring of 2021. The new factory, with two production lines, is planned to occupy a site of more than 100,000 square meters in the Pilsen Digital Park, enabling further expansion when required. Its construction is to be divided into two phases. The first would create around 150 new jobs and the second, raise the total to some 200 professional jobs in engineering and support roles.
The development, in the West of Czech Republic, would expand Ball's output in the region to meet the growing demand from consumers who want sustainable and recyclable beverage packaging. EUR 170 million facility plans to launch operations in October 2022.
