Ardagh Group Teams Up With O’Connor Brewing Company

Ardagh Group’s glass subsidiary has partnered with the US-based O’Connor Brewing Company to manufacture all its 12oz long-neck glass bottles.

The packaging firm will design and manufacture the 12oz long-neck amber beer bottles for O’Connor Brewing Company using 100 percent recyclable amber glass.

Business Partner

Commenting on the partnership, Zach Volkman, vice president for operations at O’Connor Brewing, said: “When we were in the market for a new bottle supplier last fall, Ardagh was very attractive to us as a business partner. Ardagh was competitively priced while offering top-notch quality standards.

He continued, “The [company’s] nearby facility in Wilson, North Carolina is able to provide us with great operational flexibility with reliable and short-notice shipments when we need them. Additionally, the close proximity of the facility helps to reduce our supply chain carbon footprint and promote our company’s green initiative.”

Quality And Consistency

Elsewhere, John T Shaddox, chief commercial officer for Ardagh Group’s North American Glass business unit, said that the brewer's "passion for supplying quality and consistency in their beer aligns well with Ardagh’s dedication to manufacturing high-quality glass packaging that showcases and protects the integrity of their craft beer.
