Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Bottling Company is pleased to announce that our new warehouse and production line in Springfield, MO is officially in operation!
To celebrate this occasion, we held a ceremony on May 15, 2021, dedicating the new facility and recognizing the efforts of those who have made our growth possible. Our senior leadership led the ceremony and officially marked the opening of the new facility with a ribbon-cutting. All of our Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Bottling Company family was invited to attend, as well as other distinguished guests and members of the media. During this ceremony, we honored the multitude of team members who have helped bring us to where we are today, and who will help propel us into our future.
Located at the headwaters of the Jordan Creek, our new 432,000-square-foot facility uses a conveyor to move goods from the adjacent production center directly into the new warehouse. The new production line also includes a plastic bottle blow mold, which will significantly reduce future manufacturing costs. This will greatly increase the capacity of our operations in the Springfield area, enabling us to better serve our community in the future.
Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Bottling Company has grown immensely throughout our history, and we owe a great deal of thanks to the communities of the Ozarks. It is your support that has brought us the success we celebrated at this ceremony. We look forward to serving you in the future, and to continued growth throughout Southwest Missouri.
