Keurig Dr Pepper (KDP) is investing $200 million to create a new production and warehouse facility in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

KDP said the new facility provides “additional, highly efficient capacity for existing and new brands”.

In addition, it will help enable the company to optimise 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,” said 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.”

The investment is expected to create almost 400 new jobs in the area.
