Just Drinks

From Alan Osborn
The British drink can manufacturer Rexam plc is to sell its beverage can

plants at Runcorn in the UK and its factory in France to the German company

Schmalbach-Lubeca under a deal approved today Tuesday by the European

Commission. Brussels said it had no concerns about competition. The sales

are a condition of last year's deal under which Rexam acquired American

National Can. Sale of a third Rexam plant, at Gelsenkirchen in Germany, is

under scrutiny by the Commission.
