Exal Corporation, the largest producer of impact extruded aluminum containers in the world, has agreed to sell Exal Packaging SA (Exal's filling business), in Garin, Argentina to the Queruclor Group, an Argentine manufacturer and supplier of personal and home care products.

The sale which was completed, allows Exal to focus resources on its existing can making facilities in North and South America and also on its recent merger announcement with the Ardagh Group to form the new Trivium Packaging joint venture.

Exal's parent, the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan will control a 57% stake in Trivium.

Completion of the Trivium transaction is subject to regulatory approval and is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2019.
