“This is an incredible opportunity and we’re proud to have reached this agreement with Newell Brands,” said Jim Peterson, CEO Ball Metalpack. “This relationship makes a lot of sense for both businesses. With our extensive expertise in metal forming and coating, and our deep understanding of the food canning process, we look forward to bringing real value to Newell Brands over the coming years.”
