HENRY COUNTY, VA – Crown Holdings, Inc. hasn't finished building its facility and already plans to expand its operations in Henry County.
Crown Holdings says this is due to increased demand for its products in several segments of the aluminum beverage can industry.
They plan to add an additional 168,000 square feet to its production facility currently under construction in the county’s Commonwealth Crossing Business Centre.
With the $20 million expansion, the facility will be 523,000 square feet in total.
“Seeing a company expand even before it opens its original facility isn’t the norm, but Crown isn’t the normal company either,” said Jim Adams, Chair of the Henry County Board of Supervisors. “We are thrilled with this news, and we are more confident than ever that Crown will be a jewel for this community.”
The company anticipates the need for additional storage capacity in the continually expanding aluminum beverage can market.
Crown’s original plans were announced on January 28, 2021 by then Governor Ralph Northam and its $145 million facility was the largest single initial announcement in Henry County’s history.
Founded in 1892 and headquartered in Yardley, Pennsylvania, Crown Holdings, Inc. is a global supplier of rigid packaging products to consumer marketing companies, as well as transit and protective packaging products, equipment, and services to a broad range of end markets.
It has operations in 47 countries employing over 33,000 people.
