Aujan to double can production in Iran
Dammam, October 2, 2011
Aujan Industries, the leading soft drink company in the Middle East, said that it will double the capacity of its can-making plant in Iran by the end of next year.
This significant increase in production comes in response to enormous demand for the products produced at the Kaveh Beverage Can Company, which supplies a range of both international and domestic brands.
The first foreign beverage company to launch operations in Iran, Aujan established the Kaveh plant in 2009. The facility has a current capacity of 800 million cans annually, which will be expanded to reach 1.6 cans billion cans by the end of next year.
To ensure the highest possible level of performance at the rapidly expanding Kaveh plant, Aujan is partnering with Rexam, a leading global consumer packaging company, to oversee the expansion process, including training staff and providing critical technical expertise.
“As industry pioneers, we recognized early the enormous opportunity in Iran, with its large, young consumer market,” said Sheikh Adel Aujan, chairman of Aujan.
“As we continue to grow our operations in that country,” he added. 'We are very pleased to partner with Rexam, one of the world’s leading beverage can-makers. This relationship is especially important to us as we look towards future expansion activities in the wider region.”
“At Rexam we are very excited about the opportunity to work with Aujan during this period of continuous expansion at this century-old beverage company,” said Graham Chipchase, chief executive of Rexam.
“We have long experience from similar partnerships and are confident that our can-making and can-filling expertise will make a sustained contribution to the expansion of the Kaveh plant and, in the longer term, to Aujan’s ability to reach its goal of becoming a truly global beverage player,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
