How Product is Made
AC-CCSWB’s new Northpoint facility is the first Coca-Cola bottling plant built in the United States in more than a decade. It upgrades the company’s manufacturing, distribution and delivery capability to better serve its Southwest Texas territory, namely the booming Houston metro area. Strategic design and leading-edge technology are the cornerstones of the 1 million-sq.-ft. facility, every detail of which was engineered with productivity, efficiency, safety and sustainability in mind.
International Bottle Art
AC-CCSWB tapped five artists from the countries where Arca Continental manufactures and distributes beverages for a collaborative project celebrating the imagery and icons from their respective homelands. Acclaimed creatives from Argentina, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and the United States spent a week at the Northpoint plant, dropping tarps and painting 5-ft. Coke bottles with cultural symbols and familiar scenes from their countries.
The Bottle Chandelier
Visitors to the Northpoint facility can marvel at a glowing, two-story chandelier illuminating not only the facility, but also the passion and commitment of the plant’s 1,000 associates. The 22-ft aluminum structure was built with sustainability in mind, using aluminum and 20 oz. PET bottles.
