GZ Industries set to open new Kenya plant in 2016

Nigerian beverage-can maker, GZ Industries Limited, based in Agbara, Ogun State, has said that it will open a new plant in Kenya in 2016.

The Sultan Hamud plant which GZ Industries started building in 2014 is nearing completion and will produce about 2.4bn cans yearly. In September, the company announced that it was expanding into South Africa with the construction of a 1bn rand ($71 million) factory in Johannesburg.

The Sultan Hamud plant lies on the main railway line of Kenya Railways, which connects the coastal city of Mombasa and the capital Nairobi.
