Coke invests $1.5 million in Kingston plant


Coca-Cola Canada has announced a $1.5-million investment into a new distribution facility in Kingston.

Estimated at 10,000 square feet, the new space will offer a larger, more efficient design for “long-term growth” and will replace the current workspace on Railway Street. The building has broken ground on Innovation Drive and is set to be finished in May. 

Coke Canada says the facility distributes more than 400 products to customers across the region, a process that is meant to be streamlined and modernized with the new building.

There are more than 80 Coke Canada employees in Kingston. While the current facility will be larger and more modern, it is not expected to take on more employees or operations.
