Amcor Capsules, which develops and produces responsible closures and capsules for wine and spirits brands, announced the opening of its new plant in Granby, Quebec, which is expected to begin commercial operations in early April 2024. 

The new production facility in Granby, located just 20 kilometers from Amcor Capsulesā€™ current facility in St. Cesaire, reinforces Amcorā€™s long-standing presence in North America dating back over 30 years. It marks a significant milestone in the company's commitment to providing North American customers with local solutions to support their growth. 

Its strategic location not only enhances the supply chain, enabling efficient local North American distribution, but also facilitates improved service to customers and reduced supply lead times. With its integrated supply chain approach, the Granby plant exemplifies Amcor Capsulesā€™ dedication to delivering excellence in every aspect of its operations. 

The new Granby plant, spanning over 100,000 square feet, represents a significant leap forward for Amcor Capsules in its commitment to providing premium quality closures and capsules. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and comprehensive camera systems, this facility also ensures meticulous quality checks throughout the production process. 

"We are thrilled to inaugurate our new plant in Granby, Quebec, which underscores our unwavering dedication to providing exceptional service and quality to our customers," said Patrice Rigaud, Plant General Manager St Cesaire & Granby. "This new plant will not only significantly expand our production capacity, but also reaffirm our commitment to provide the best screwcap design, expertise, and production capabilities in North America, delivering constant high quality and service standards." 

In line with Amcor Capsulesā€™ sustainability engagement, the Granby plant operates entirely on renewable energy, leveraging Quebec's hydropower which accounts for 100% of the province's electricity. Furthermore, the plant will be producing the companyā€™s greener version of its market leading STELVINĀ® aluminium screwcap range, which was announced in October 2023 and offers a reduced carbon footprint by up to 35%1. The reduction in carbon emissions will also benefit spirits brand owners ordering 30x60mm screwcaps from Amcor Capsules. This commitment to environmental responsibility underscores the companyā€™s mission to move towards a more sustainable future while meeting customer demands. 

ā€œThe investment in our new facility in Granby is a testament to our commitment to providing cutting-edge screwcap solutions that exceed customer expectations," said Yannick Magnon, General Manager Amcor Capsules. "We are confident that this expansion will not only enhance our operational capabilities but also contribute to the overall satisfaction of our valued customers."
