The enormity and scale of a 625,000ft2 factory complex under construction in Peterborough – which when complete will create 280 jobs – can be revealed.

American based metal can manufacturer Crown Holdings is building the factory within a 30-acre land parcel at Delta Park, Peterborough.

Crown Holdings, a metal can manufacturing company based in the US, is building a new beverage can manufacturing facility at Delta Park, Peterborough, in the UK..
The facility will become Europe’s largest beverage can manufacturing facility upon completion and support the company in meeting growing customer requirements for sustainable beverage packaging options in the UK.

“Beverage cans are the world’s most sustainable and recycled beverage packaging option and are increasingly preferred by customers and consumers alike,” said a company spokesperson.

“A growing proportion of new beverages in the U.K. is being introduced in cans, and this new facility demonstrates Crown’s commitment to meeting expanding customer requirements.”

Construction on the Peterborough plant is expected to allow for production to commence later this year.

The company says additional lines are planned in a phased manner to reach over three billion units of annual capacity.

Delta Park will become Europe’s largest beverage can manufacturing facility and Crown Holding says it supports their growing customer requirements for sustainable beverage packaging options in the UK.

The site previously housed a manufacturing facility operated by pet food producer MARS Petcare that was demolished in 2014.

UK-based commercial developer Trebor Developments bought the site in 2020 together with its partner Hillwood, a US-based commercial real estate developer.

The site lies just 3.2km away from the city centre and about 4.8km from the A1.

The new facility will be built on a 625,000ft2 area in the park that Crown Holdings purchased from Trebor Developments for more than £150m in March 2022.

The development of the Peterborough facility is part of the company’s plans to add 25 billion units of beverage can capacity between 2020 and 2023 to meet the growing beverage can demand.
