The Pepsi Bottling Group has completed the acquisition of Mexican bottler Bebidas Purificadas SA (Bepusa) for an undisclosed sum.

Bepusa, based in the northwestern region of Mexico, operates seven manufacturing plants and 22 warehouses, employing around 2,200 people in the three states of Sonora, Sinaloa and Baja California Sur.

PBG chairman and CEO John Cahill said: "This business is an ideal addition to our business in Mexico. It is contiguous to our existing operations, which will allow us to efficiently leverage our infrastructure across this territory. With this new business, PBG Mexico now will generate approximately 70% of Pepsi's total sales in Mexico."

Earlier this month, PBG announced that COO Pablo Lagos was to take over as president and general manager. In April, the company reported a 5% rise in first-quarter volumes from its operations in Mexico.
