Charlotte, N.C.-based Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated announced a $10 million investment in its Baltimore manufacturing plant, located at 701 North Kresson St. Mayor Catherine Pugh joined company officials on a tour of the production center to learn more about the investment and manufacturing processes at the facility.
Coca-Cola Consolidated took over operations in Baltimore from Coca-Cola Refreshments on April 29, 2016. It then renovated the 154,000-square-foot manufacturing center and made significant improvements to the site, it says. The company also upgraded one of the canning lines to include 7.5-ounce and 12-ounce ‘sleek’ can products in the production lineup. Currently, the Baltimore manufacturing center primarily makes 12-ounce canned carbonated soft drinks such as Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite and caffeine-free Diet Coke.
