US: Pepsi Bottling Group builds new plant in Las Vegas
Pepsi Bottling Group has confirmed that it is building a new production facility in Las Vegas.
Speaking to just-drinks yesterday (6 September), a spokesperson for the company said that the plant will have a dedicated water line, a fountain bag-in-box line and small-bottle PET capabilities. PBG is spending US$100m on the site, which is currently in the construction phase.
The company made the decision to build the facility, which should be operational by the summer of next year, because of "the tremendous growth in Las Vegas, not only in population terms, but also in the water category in the city", the spokesperson said.
Production at the site should begin during the first quarter of next year.
Last month, PBG confirmed that it was looking to "realign" its organisation in the US and Canada, with the prospect of 700 job cuts. Up to 150 management positions will be eliminated, with up to 550 hourly positions going internationally.
