Crown Continues Expansion Into China

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- To respond to growing demand for beverage cans in China, Crown Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCK) (Crown) ( www.crowncork.com) today announced plans to build a new two-piece beverage can plant in Nanning, the capital of Guangxi Province in Southern China. With a population of 6.6 million, this prefectural city is strategically located, bordering Guangdong to the East and Yunnan to the West.

The new plant is expected to be operational by the end of Q2 2013 and have an initial annual production capacity of 750 million two-piece 33cl aluminum beverage cans. The plant will also have the ability to produce 50cl beverage cans.

The company expects to begin production in Putian ( Fujian Province), Ziyang ( Sichuan Province) and Heshan ( Guangdong Province) in 2012.
