ZUG, SWITZERLAND — Eviosys, a global supplier of metal packaging for various consumer products including pet food, recently invested €8 million ($8.37 million USD) to expand its operations in Portugal and Spain. The investment will enable the company to ramp up its production capacity for two-piece cans in three of its facilities.

According to Eviosys, the company has experienced growing demand for two-piece, EOE round and irregular aluminum and steel cans from the fish, meat and pet food industries as these industries witness continued consumer demand.
