Major investment is even more important during tough times than easy ones, according to Steve Adams, Coca-Cola Enterprise’s operations director at Sidcup.

In this podcast, he tells Rod Addy why and explains where the firm’s latest £21M investment is being directed.

The 120,000m2 ​Sidcup site’s canning line has accounted for the biggest chunk of investment, but £960,000 is also being spent on a new raw materials warehouse. Other areas that have received cash support include the factory’s plastic bottle line, aseptic filling line and new product development area.

Speaking at the Sidcup plant, Adams outlined plans to take annual output at the site from 51M cases now to 75M within the next three years.
