Mexican container glassmaker Pavisa has set up a French subsidiary.

It said Pavisa France would better address the European market’s needs.

Pavisa has dealt with premium glassmaking for 66 years and is one of only a few global glassmaker’s to use three glassmaking processes: automatic, semi-mechanised and manual.

That allows it to address all the needs of the premium perfume and spirits brands.

The formation of the new subsidiary was decided because the European market is one of the most dynamic market and premium complex projects, which requires proximity with development and purchasing local teams.

It will be managed by Pavisa France President, Arturo Franco (pictured).
