Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated, Charlotte, N.C., opened a new warehouse and logistics center at the Valley Gateway Industrial Park in Roanoke County, Virginia. The company says the expansion represents an investment of more than $9 million in the Roanoke Valley.
 
“We are excited to expand our operations in the Roanoke Valley,” said Bill Elmore, Coca-Cola Consolidated president and chief operating officer at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “This investment of more than $9 million includes a new bottling line at our downtown Roanoke manufacturing plant on Shenandoah Avenue and the opening of our new warehouse and logistics center at Valley Gateway.”
 
In addition, Coca-Cola Consolidated announced a partnership with the Western Virginia Land Trust to sponsor the Conservation Celebration in September, during which the Land Trust will be honoring the conservation achievements of Virginia Governor Tim Kaine. Coca-Cola Consolidated is donating a Toyota Prius to the Land Trust to assist in its mission.
 
Elmore said: “The Coca-Cola system has set a goal to return 100 percent of the water we use back to nature. We are pleased to be able to promote this goal by supporting the Land Trust in the creation and maintenance of healthy watersheds throughout western Virginia.”
