Crown Holdings is to cut 300 jobs across its European operations as part of a revised Q3 outlook due to weak demand.
The revised outlook reflects lower than expected end-user demand in some of the company's markets, including European food cans and North American beverage cans.
The firm said it expects to record a pre-tax restructuring charge of $32m ($29m after tax) in Q3 2013.
Charges reflect plans to reduce headcount, primarily in the food, aerosol and specialty packaging businesses, which the firm anticipates will lead to annual cost reductions of $25m.
Crown Holdings will release its earnings for Q3 ending 30 September on 16 October and will hold a conference call to discuss the results the next day.
