Coca-Cola Reopens Renovated Factory in the Netherlands
The multinational company has invested nearly $100 million over past three years
Coca-Cola has officially reopened its newly renovated factory in Dongen, the Netherlands. The global, Atlanta-based company invested nearly $100 million over the past three years to renovate the factory, streamline production and become more sustainable.
“We’ve worked extremely hard to make Coca-Cola Nederland ready for the future,” said Jaap Wassink, Vice-President and Country Director of Coca-Cola European Partners Nederland. “A future in which we halve our CO2 output, reduce our energy consumption and minimize our use of natural resources. A future in which we recycle everything we use. That future started today in our new factory in Dongen.”
Coca-Cola’s Dongen factory first opened in the 1950s in the Dutch province of North Brabant and manufactures 85 percent of all soft drinks sold in the Netherlands, employing 800 people. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte was present at the reopening and took a tour of the ultra-modern factory.
