The event was attended by Peter F Giorgi, owner of the Canpack Group and the chairman of the supervisory board of Canpack, along with Herman Nicolaas Nusmeier, CEO and President of the managing board of Canpack and other supervisory and managerial board members.

The Nuh plant will employ approximately 160 workers, bringing Canpack India’s total employment base to over 750 direct employees. The 36 acres of acquired land in Nuh will manufacture 180 ml, 250 ml and 500 ml cans with a capacity of 950 million cans per year. The capacity of this plant is expandable to 2.4 billion cans per year. Even though North India will be the major market space, cans produced at the Nuh facility will also be exported to neighbouring countries.

"Following the increased demand of modern aluminum packaging, Canpack India has now decided to accelerate its expansion into the Indian market. This investment has been triggered by a forecast indicating that there is great potential for growth within the Indian market. We are optimistic that India will soon be one of the most important markets for the Canpack Group. The decision to invest so highly in the country was taken after several studies, focusing on our sustainable development in the long term," said Nico Nusmeier.

The Nuh plant received first stage industrial clearance by the Chief Minister of Haryana through HEPC (Haryana Enterprise Promotion Council) for setting up its second Indian aluminum can manufacturing facility in Nuh Haryana, NCR region in February 2017. Canpack is the first company to receive this clearance through HEPC.
