Coke Canada Bottling to invest $42 M in Lower Mainland, B.C. facilities


Coca-Cola Canada Bottling Limited (Coke Canada Bottling) is making capital investments of close to $42 million in its Lower Mainland, B.C. operations. The investments include $24 million in a new manufacturing line at its Richmond facility as well as an additional $18 million in a new, specialized, combined sales, warehouse and distribution facility, also to be located in Richmond.  

“We are a family business and, as the Lower Mainland’s local bottler, we’re very committed to investing in our local business for the long-term,” said Todd Parsons, Coke Canada Bottling CEO. “We’re guided by our Mission to deliver optimism and create a better future for our customers, consumers, and communities. By increasing our manufacturing capacity and consolidating our warehouse and distribution operations, we’re ensuring we’re able to grow our business and continue to make, distribute, merchandise, and sell B.C.’s favourite beverages for many years to come.” 

The new manufacturing line at the Richmond manufacturing facility will enable the usage of pre-form bottles, add capacity to the facility, and help decrease packaging emissions. It is expected to be operational in Spring 2023. 

The new sales, warehouse and distribution centre will combine the capabilities of the company’s current distribution centres in Richmond and Coquitlam. It will offer expanded storage capabilities and enable a seamless transition of the products from production to placement on the company’s iconic Red Truck and, ultimately, better deliver on customers’ needs from Vancouver to Hope, British Columbia. The facility, which is slated to open in Spring 2024, will also be home to Coke Canada’s local fleet and equipment service operations.
