ST. LOUIS — Anheuser-Busch said it will invest between $70 million and $80 million to increase production capacity at its Metal Container Corp. subsidiary in the St. Louis suburb of Arnold.

The Jefferson County facility produces aluminum cans for Anheuser-Busch and soda makers. Anheuser-Busch says the expansion should be complete next year and will help Metal Container Corp. maintain the more than 100 workers at the plant.

The maker of beers such as Budweiser, Bud Light and Michelob said the expansion is made possible through a property tax abatement program in collaboration with the city and county.

In October, Anheuser-Busch announced plans to invest $1 billion in facilities across the country during the next three years.
