Construction of Saverglass’s container glass facility in Mexico is making rapid progress.

The French company has invested €100 million in the new container glass facility about 40km from Guadalajara.

The commissioning date has been fixed for June 2, 2018 and aims to produce 80 million bottles a year.

The unit will produce bottles for tequila, wine and rum and produce bottles in a variety of colours.

The group will focus on three markets: American wines, tequila and the rum market in the Caribbean and Central America.

So far, 600 pillars have been sunk into the ground for production, composition and storage buildings at the 25-hectare site.
