Coca-Cola Canada Bottling plans to expand the capacity of its manufacturing facilities in Weston and Brampton as it intends to bring some of the US beverage manufacturing to Canada.

As part of this initiative, the company will be investing nearly C$30m ($23.5m).

The company is putting C$17m ($13.3m) in its Weston plant for installing new equipment to cope with the growing demand for many of its carbonated beverages.

Coca-Cola Canada Bottling said that the equipment will begin operations in the first quarter of next year, with full production timed for this spring.

Currently, some of the carbonated beverages are produced in the US.

With this investment, the company intends to enhance the efficiency of the facility, which has a workforce of 185 people.

Coke Canada Bottling president and CEO Todd Parsons said: “As Canada’s local bottler, we’re very committed to our mission to create a better future and deliver optimism for our employees, customers, consumers, and communities and investing in our manufacturing facilities is one of the ways we intend to do that.

“As a family-owned business, we’re committed to long-term growth. These investments are critical to our mission and will help us increase our owned manufacturing capabilities in the Greater Toronto Area for many years to come.”

The company will be investing C$12.8m ($10m) in its Brampton facility to convert the existing line manufacturing capabilities and is expected to be operational this summer.
