Ball Corp. starts $18M expansion of plant in Wisconsin

BROOMFIELD – Ball Corp. announced Tuesday that it will spend $18 million to expand its metal container operations in DeForest, Wis., a move expected to create about 40 new jobs.

Broomfield-based Ball (NYSE: BLL), which makes packaging for the food, beverage and household products industries in addition to its aerospace division, is slated to receive up to $400,000 in economic development tax credits. The credits were approved by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., and the actual amount will be contingent on the number of jobs created and retained, as well as the amount spent on capital investment.

The expansion will include expanding its current 400,000-square-foot facility in DeForest and equipping it with a new product line for extruded aluminum aerosol cans.

The new product line is expected to be operational early next year.
