SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — A group of investors have opened a $60 million plant in central Puerto Rico to produce aluminum cans.

Caribbean Can Manufacturing Company LLC says it is capable of producing up to 1,800 cans per minute, and expects to expand operations to produce up to 2,400 cans per minute.

Company officials said Friday that they will initially export cans to the Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Jamaica, and plan to expand to the U.S. and Latin America. The company said it currently produces cans for beers and soft drinks.

The plant has created a total of 200 jobs.
