Dutch brewing giant Heineken plans to add a new aluminum can manufacturing facility to its operations in Mexico.

The $90 million facility, which would be located near its brewery in the northern town of Mequoi, would help address increased demand for cans as rival companies struggle to obtain glass for their bottles, Reuters reports.

The project is expected to create some 150 construction jobs. Once completed, about 120 people will work at the factory.

The plant would be Heineken’s seventh in Mexico.
