ABN – Construction on GZ Industries (GZI) Aluminium Cans Manufacturing plant is due to be completed in August 2015.
Civicon Limited are doing the construction work on the Sh2bn project, which is set to be the largest plant in Kenya.
Civicon’s parent Transcentury Group CEO Dr Gachao Kiuna said: "This project is quite huge and as Civicon and Transcentury Group as a whole we are happy to be involved.
“The project is going to contribute a lot in the country's manufacturing sector.
"We will be done by July, August there I would say we have taken roughly one year."
The facility is expected to have an annual production capacity of 1.2 billion cans.
Kiuna added: "The plant has a capacity of being able to satisfy the region's cans demand.
"I know GZI have the exact numbers in terms of production and the firms they will supply to, but I would not see the reason why our local beverage and beer companies would need to import these cans anymore."
