Rexam makes more cuts in 12oz drinks can capacity

December 11: Rexam is making a further cut to its beverage can capacity in the US with the closure of its plant at Oklahoma City by the end of March.

The move is a result of a review announced in July of Rexam’s 12oz beverage can capacity in North America. At that time it said that its plant at Forest Park, Georgia, would be closed and a 12oz production line at Longview, Texas, taken out of commission, with a total capacity of 1.9 billion cans a year.

Demand for 12oz cans for carbonated soft drinks has dropped by about 5 percent in the past year.
