Coca-Cola Canada Bottling plots expansion plan in Ontario, Quebec
Coca-Cola Canada Bottling Ltd. plans to spend more than $35 million in an expansion plan that will allow it to move production of several products to Canada from the U.S.
The money will be spent at two plants in the Greater Toronto Area and one in Montreal.
The company is putting $17 million into its Weston plant to install new equipment in response to growing demand for many of the carbonated beverages the company makes.
The new equipment is to start up in the first quarter of 2021 with full production timed for the spring.
Coke Canada Bottling says it will also spend $12.8 million at its bottling facility in Brampton, Ont. The project will create nine new jobs in Brampton on top of the current 1,300 and is expected to be operational this summer.
In Quebec, the company will invest $5.5 million at the Coke Canada Bottling facility in the Montreal suburb of Lachine.
