Built in 2008, the Lublin facility was originally constructed to produce metal beverage cans. Following the economic downturn of 2008, the Lublin investment was suspended and its beverage can manufacturing equipment was redeployed to Ball's Belgrade, Serbia, facility in 2010.

"With the growing demand for beverage cans in Europe, the Lublin facility provides us with the optimal location to economically provide beverage can ends to our existing customers," said Colin Gillis, president, Ball Packaging Europe.

"This low-cost investment will provide more than 60 new manufacturing jobs in Poland with room to expand as the market continues to grow".
