BRIEFLY

American Can agreed to sell its packaging unit.

July 18, 1986

By selling the unit to Triangle Industries for about $570 million, it divests itself of the business on which American Can was founded 85 years ago. The proposed divestiture is part of American Can's 5-year-old program to redeploy its resources away from manufacturing and toward service industries with stronger growth potential.
