Coca-Cola Canada Bottling is investing over $70 million in its Calgary distribution operations to fuel growth and increase its capacity and capabilities.

The investment is for a new high-density warehouse that will be built on its site in northeast Calgary, which is home to a manufacturing facility and distribution centre. The company currently relies on third-party warehouses. The investment marks the largest single investment the company has made in its operations since becoming an independent, family-owned business in 2018.

“Our mission is to deliver optimism and create a better future by bringing sustainable value for our customers, consumers and communities and to do that we’re committed to investing to grow our business in Calgary for generations to come,” said Todd Parsons, Coke Canada Bottling CEO. “Our Calgary team has an important role in ensuring we meet and exceed the needs of our customers throughout Western Canada. We’re now bringing global best practices and self-sufficiency to our local operations, ensuring we can continue to make, distribute, merchandise and sell Canadians’ favourite beverages for many years to come.”

The new facility will ensure all local storage is now within Coke Canada Bottling’s Calgary facilities and feature the company’s first automated storage and retrieval system, a digital inventory management system and increased door dock capacity for its fleet. The 60,000-sf warehouse will house 19,000 pallets of beverages.
