REXAM will launch into operation a new beverage can production plant in Brazil this year. Vladimir Pekic writes: the new factory in Benevides, in Brazil’s northern Pará state, will increase the company’s aluminium can output in South America to 14 billion units. Rexam has a dozen plants in the region, including 10 in Brazil, one in Chile and one in Argentina. Rexam expects a spike in demand during the Fifa World Cup 2014 and Rio Olympic Games 2016, which will be hosted by Brazil and Rio de Janeiro.
