The Whitestown, Indiana Coca-Cola Consolidated distribution and automated warehouse facility opened April 19. The company invested approximately $60 million to build this 400,000-square-foot facility, allowing it to better serve its customers in central Indiana and the surrounding region. The facility will be able to distribute more than 20 million cases each year.
More than 450 teammates in warehouse, distribution, sales and equipment services roles are working to serve customers and consumers across the region. The Whitestown facility also will include teammates and vehicles from the company’s transportation subsidiary, Red Classic Transit, and a new 15,000-square-foot fleet shop.
“We are excited to continue our journey of growth in the Hoosier state,” said Levi Alexander, Whitestown operations manager. “This investment in expanding our distribution capabilities is a long-term commitment to improving how we serve the world’s best brands and flavors to our communities.”
Nearly 200 employees will continue production operations at the Indianapolis production facility, which has increased capacity due to a more than $18 million investment to add a sleek can production line.
