The companies will continue to trade under their existing names.

The creation of this separate engineering entity will afford these businesses greater commercial and operational focus. The strategy will be to profitably grow these engineering businesses through further intra-Group and external sales development.

Mr. David Wall, who has been appointed as Chief Executive of the new organisation commented, “The new structure will create two distinct entities within Ardagh Glass; glass container manufacturing and glass technology activities, both of whom have world recognition. The formation of the new Engineering Group will bring greater focus and synergy for these activities, better utilising the Group’s experience and expertise in all areas of glass container technology.”
