Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc., Waterbury, Vt., has chosen Sumner, Wash., as the location for a new manufacturing and distribution facility for its specialty coffee business unit. The new leased site will support the expansion of the Tully’s Coffee brand and wholesale business, the national expansion of other GMCR brands and the growth of the company’s single-cup business. The Sumner facility is expected to be operational this fall.
 
“We are extremely excited about joining the Sumner community and are grateful for the support we received from the State of Washington Department of Commerce, the Economic Development Board for Tacoma-Pierce County and the City of Sumner,” said Jon Wettstein, vice president of supply chain operations for GMCR’s specialty coffee business unit. “Our investment in a new, modern site in Sumner will complement our existing facilities in our home state of Vermont and in Knox County, Tenn. It will allow us to accommodate the significant growth and expansion we are planning for the Tully’s business, as well as for the expansion of our other brands on the West Coast.”
