Amcor announced a major expansion of PP bottle capacity in the U.S and Canada

March 30/2012
(amcor) -- Amcor Rigid Plastics, the worlds leading producer of rigid plastic packaging, has announced a major expansion of extrusion blow molded PP bottle capacity in the Midwest, Southwest, and Canada in response to strong market demand for packaging for food and nutritional supplements.

The multi-million-dollar expansion at production facilities in Batavia, Ill., Fort Worth, Texas, and
Brampton, Ontario, also enables Amcor to shift its manufacturing footprint closer to key customers to deliver key
sustainability advantages including improved logistics and reduced transportation costs.

The new capacity is primarily for production of multilayer polypropylene (PP) containers a product line acquired
in August 2010 from Ball Plastics Packaging Americas - along with HDPE containers with PCR content for
personal care and household uses. "Since the acquisition, weve taken a business rich in know-how and
innovative technology to a new level," said Laurel Spencer, Vice President of marketing for Amcor Rigid Plastics
North America, Diversified Products.

"Our strategy is to invest in new manufacturing to support growth in leading markets while meeting the needs of our customers in these key regions."
