Keurig to invest $337 million in pod manufacturing facility

Keurig Green Mountain anticipates it will spend US$337 million on developing a Keurig Cold manufacturing facility in Douglasville, United States. The new Douglas County manufacturing center will produce pods for Keurig Cold, an in-home cold beverage system. “Keurig Cold is an exciting new multi-brand platform for our company, and ensuring beverage pod production capacity and efficiency are key to its success,” said Brian Kelley, Keurig’s President and CEO. “The Douglas County region offers a diverse and skilled employee base as well as many geographic and economic benefits, making it a great location for our new facility.” Keurig is working with The Coca-Cola Company to introduce the cold beverage pod system. It is currently under development and is expected to be available in 2015. The opening of the 585,000 square foot building in Douglasville is expected to generate 550 new jobs, according to the company. “Douglas County is honoured that Keurig has chosen us for its newest location. They have trusted their brand to our county, and we are grateful,” said Douglas County Commission Chairman Tom Worthan, in a statement. The Douglas County site will support the Early Production Center in Williston, Vermont.
