PepsiCo Beverages North America (PBNA) has officially opened a new $8.5 million warehouse and distribution facility in Commerce, Georgia.
The 172,000-square-foot site will distribute 6 million cases of beverages – including Pepsi, Mtn Dew, Gatorade, Bubly, Aquafina and Pure Leafe – annually across 26 routes to customers in 28 countries.
The new plant will also create 50 new jobs, including product pickets, forklift operators, CDL-A drivers, inventory specialists and checkers.
“This new facility is an integral next step in our recent expansion in the state of Georgia,” said Darcy Arata, senior VP of operations at PBNA south division. “Our Commerce facility will increase our capacity and productivity in the state, enabling PepsiCo to better service the needs of our customers across key counties in northern Georgia and give them the great beverages they love while creating job opportunities on the ground.”
The news follows PepsiCo’s $260 million expansion of the PBNA manufacturing facility in the City of Tucker earlier this year.
