Corvaglia cuts ribbon at first US manufacturing plant

The Swiss recyclable plastic cap maker has built a factory in Newnan, Georgia

Corvaglia, the Switzerland-based maker of recyclable plastic caps for the food and beverage industry, has announced the completion of a manufacturing facility in the United States. Located in Newnan, Georgia, the new site is the first of the Swiss company in the US. The opening ceremony will be held on 5 April.

An international company, Corvaglia manufactures 100% recyclable plastic caps and closures for the food and beverage industry worldwide.

The new US facility will complement the Corvaglia's existing operations in Eschlikon, Switzerland and Ixtlahuaca, Mexico.

Corvaglia’s business is dedicated to closure design as a vertically-integrated manufacturer and supplier of caps and closures for PET (polyethylene terephthalate) containers.

Founded in 1991, Corvaglia uses lightweight technologies for bottled waters, carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks, isotonics, juices, teas, dairy and edible oils.

The new US facility utilises Corvaglia’s in-house proprietary moulds to manufacture lightweight one-piece caps and closures for the North American beverage market.

Additionally, the Corvaglia US operation offers high-speed digital printing that provides unique short-run customisation and branding opportunities.
