|Construction Works make Quantum Leap
After the ground-breaking ceremonies for the new Philippine Metal Closures plant, the construction works make very good progress. Nearly 85% of the construction work is already completed.
The new facility will be the future home of Silgan White Cap Southeast Asia. It is designed to feature sufficient production capability for Twist-Off and PT metal closures. Space for lithography operations is also provided.
The plant is located on a 10,752-sqm lot in an export processing zone in Santa Rosa City, Philippines. The complete relocation of the existing SWCSEA operations plus the installation of additional cap-making lines are targeted for the end of 2008.
Silgan White Cap
With 15 plants Silgan White Cap is an international producer of metal, plastic
and composite closures for oxygen sensitive, vacuum packaged and aseptically packaged food products and still beverages. Its closures are used exclusively in glass or plastic container applications.
