Keurig Dr Pepper invests $200m in Pennsylvania operations
The facility will give KDP additional capacity for both new and existing brands, as well as helping the company optimize its logistics footprint in the Northeast with large-scale warehouse operations.
The $200m investment will create nearly 400 jobs, says the coffee and beverage giant.
Fernando Cortes, Chief Supply Chain Officer, KDP, said: “KDP is focused on building an integrated, best-in-class manufacturing network that supports the production of all beverages in all categories.
“Our new facility in Allentown and additional supply chain investments in existing facilities support our vision for providing a beverage for every consumer.”
Keurig Dr Pepper was created by the merger of Keurig Green Mountain and Dr Pepper Snapple Group last year. It is now the seventh-largest company in the US food and beverage sector and the third-largest beverage company in North America, with annual revenues of approximately $11bn.
