Coca-Cola Breaks Ground on South Brunswick, New Jersey Distribution Center

Coca-Cola has begun building a new shipping and distribution center in South Brunswick, New Jersey, the North Brunswick-South Brunswick Sentinel reports. Governor Chris Christie, Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno, Senator Tom Goodwin, and Mayor Frank Gambatese attended the groundbreaking of the 240,000-square-foot plant.

"We looked at present and future needs, as well as customer needs," said Michael Sullivan, New Jersey Marketing Unit vice president for Coca-Cola. "The needs dictated in part [made] Coca-Cola's decision to locate its plant in South Brunswick."

The LEED certified facility will consume 20 percent less energy than traditional buildings, decrease water consumption by 35 percent, and utilize delivery trucks that require 30 percent less fuel.

The plant is scheduled to open by the middle of 2011. Coca-Cola currently employs more than 1,000 people in New Jersey.
