Coca-Cola Amatil New Zealand to build manufacturing facility in Auckland

DBR Staff Writer Published 16 June 2015

Coca–Cola Amatil New Zealand (CCANZ) will construct a manufacturing plant at the Landing Business Park within Auckland Airport in New Zealand.


Auckland Airport will develop a 12,000m2 warehouse to cater for CCANZ's facility in the Park.

CCANZ managing director Chris Litchfield said: "We need to consolidate a number of operations into one, meaning that we require a location that ticks all the boxes in terms of connectivity, security and accessible amenities.

"CCANZ is committed to producing the best quality beverages and this new facility at Auckland Airport will enable us to continue to achieve this and complements our existing manufacturing operations."

Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Auckland Airport general manager property Mark Thomson said: "Our extensive land-holdings allow Auckland Airport to tailor bespoke solutions, not only for traditional logistics activities but also for technology users and selected manufacturers, such as CCANZ."

CCANZ bottles non-alcoholic ready-to-drink beverages in the Asia-Pacific and produces a range of beverage brands ranging from soft drinks to water, sports and energy drinks, juices, fruit products, coffee and premium beers.
