Coca-Cola Expands High-Speed Bottling Capacity In Southwest China

May 19, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola continues to lay the groundwork for expansion in the Chinese market with the opening of a high-capacity bottling facility in Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province. The new COFCO Coca-Cola Beverages Ltd (CBL) facility can make 120,000 cans an hour, making it the fastest fully automatic production line in the world, according to the company. The current industry average is between 66,000 cans and 90,000 cans every hour. The bottling line is also the only automatic production line in the global Coca-Cola system that can produce a variety of different packaging specifications at the same time. The company's first plant in China was built 21 years ago in Chengdu, where three new lines were built last year. CBL plans to accelerate production when the COVID-19 pandemic eases, increase investment in equipment renewal and technical transformation, and optimize and upgrade industrial capacity.[Image Credit: © THE COCA-COLA COMPANY]
