Amcor Rigid Plastics expands its relationship with long-time customer Campbell Soup Co. with the opening of an on-site bottle manufacturing operation in Paris, Texas, USA. Amcor’s new in-line operation is expected to produce approximately 50 million hot-fillable PET bottles each year.

Amcor invested $7 million to re-purpose 6,000 sq ft of the Paris manufacturing facility. The on-site operation will produce 46oz and 64oz PET containers for a variety of V8 vegetable juice products. At the Paris site, on-site production of hot-fill PET bottles will keep over 2,000 truckloads of containers off the road each year and eliminate over 376 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions which are equivalent to 901,246 miles driven annually by an average passenger vehicle, according to Amcor. Previously, Amcor supplied Campbell’s with PET containers from its Fort Worth, Texas manufacturing plant.

Since 2004, Amcor has operated an on-site blow moulding operation at Campbell’s beverage production plant in Napoleon, Ohio where it produces 150 million hot-fill PET containers annually.
