Coca-Cola Amatil New Zealand to build manufacturing facility at Auckland Airport's Business Park

16 June 2015

Coca–Cola Amatil New Zealand (CCANZ), the company that makes and sells Coca–Cola drinks and other leading beverages in New Zealand, is establishing a manufacturing operation at The Landing Business Park at Auckland Airport

The move will see Auckland Airport develop a purpose-built, high-tech, 12,000sqm warehouse to accommodate an addition to CCANZ’s manufacturing footprint.

Chris Litchfield, Managing Director of CCANZ, says the company is excited to partner with Auckland Airport on the development of this new facility.

“Auckland Airport has the ability to deliver a product which meets our specific requirements. We need to consolidate a number of operations into one, meaning that we require a location that ticks all the boxes in terms of connectivity, security and accessible amenities,” says Mr Litchfield.

“We also value the investment that Auckland Airport has outlaid to develop the area into a world-class business park. CCANZ is committed to producing the best quality beverages and this new facility at Auckland Airport will enable us to continue to achieve this and complements our existing manufacturing operations.”

Mark Thomson, Auckland Airport’s general manager property, says, “The move by CCANZ to Auckland Airport highlights the quality of our real estate products and our ability to tailor solutions to unique customer requirements.”

“We are focused on creating a business environment that caters to a wide range of users. Our extensive land-holdings allow Auckland Airport to tailor bespoke solutions, not only for traditional logistics activities but also for technology users and selected manufacturers, such as CCANZ,” continues Mr Thomson.

“What remains constant in all of our developments is our emphasis on creating quality buildings within a comprehensively planned and world-class environment, as well as providing outstanding amenity for our customers and their staff.”

“CCANZ is one of the largest bottlers of non-alcoholic ready-to-drink beverages in the Asia-Pacific with a portfolio that consists of several leading household brands. We are thrilled that CCANZ has entrusted Auckland Airport as its property partner,” finishes Mr Thomson.
