The French division of European bottling giant Refresco will invest millions in increasing its production capacity, LSA-Conso.fr has reported.
The company makes bottles and packaging for national brands and for supermarket chains’ private label SKUs.
Three of the four sites it operates in France will benefit from the capital – its fruit juice carton-maker in Le Quesnoy (Nord), which will gain an additional packaging line; its PET sparkling drink plant in Saint-Alban-les-Eaux (Loire); and its Margès (Drôme) unit, which bottles non-sparkling drinks and fruit juices.
“The 2017 investments in our sites in Le Quesnoy, Saint-Alban-les-Eaux and Margès will run into tens of millions,” said Pierre Bodard, managing director of Refresco France, “and it is good news for employment in these areas.”
