Coca-Cola said it is evaluating a number of its sites for possible expansion

The Coca-Cola Co has said that it is evaluating a number of its US sites for possible expansion.

The soft drinks giant is said to be spending US$120m on the expansion of a syrup facility in Columbus, Ohio, according to a report by Industrial Resources Info on Thursday (11 November). It is understood the expansion will increase the company's production of specialised syrups for a new fountain drink-dispensing machine.

When contacted by just-drinks over the weekend, a spokesperson for the firm said: "[We have] no further information to provide on this project other than we are evaluating this site, along with others, for a proposed expansion and have not made any decisions as of yet."

Last week, Coca-Cola announced that it will build on Powerade's partnership with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) by sponsoring the association's championships.
