CCA to close SA manufacturing facility, invests in QLD instead
Coca-Cola Amatil, CCA, will be closing its South Australian manufacturing facilities and will be investing $90 million into its Richlands, Queensland manufacturing facility.
CCA Group Managing Director, Alison Watkins, said the Richlands plant will be transformed in to a new, expanded, automated facility, generating greater capacity and will have comparatively lower operating costs.
“We have now identified additional consolidation opportunities across the Australian supply chain and will close our South Australian manufacturing facilities in 2019,” Watkins said.
“This is not a decision that we take lightly, however we know we must modernise and invest in new capability.”
The closure of the Tebarton facility in South Australia will deliver $20 million in cost savings from 2020 beyond the additional $100 million in cost savings to be delivered by Australian Beverages over the next three years CCA said.
CCA today also announced its 2017 half yearly financial results, reporting that it made a net profit after tax of AUD $417.9 million, representing a 6.2 per cent increase on 2016 half year financial results for CCA.
