Keurig Dr Pepper (KDP) plans to develop a new, state-of-the-art production and warehouse facility in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The company expects to invest approximately $200 million of capital and create nearly 400 jobs in the Allentown community.
This new facility provides KDP additional, highly efficient capacity for existing and new brands. In addition, it will help the company optimize its logistics footprint in the Northeast by providing large-scale warehouse operations.
“KDP is focused on building an integrated, best-in-class manufacturing network that supports the production of all beverages in all categories,” says Fernando Cortes, KDP chief supply chain officer. “Our new facility in Allentown and additional supply chain investments in existing facilities support our vision for providing a beverage for every consumer. We are excited to become part of the Allentown community as we continue to invest in new and exciting opportunities for growth.”
KDP will begin taking applications online for a variety of job opportunities in the warehouse later this month.
