Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) has opened a £5M refurbished operations centre in Milton Keynes.

The centre is responsible for the purchase, distribution and refurbishment of all CCE’s cold drink equipment in shops and businesses throughout GB, employing 160 people. A total of 80% of its managers there are female.

The building comes with energy efficient features, including a heat recovery system and movement activated lighting, supporting CCE’s aim to cut greenhouse gas emissions generated by making its drinks by a third by 2020. The site also sends zero waste to landfill meaning all waste is either recycled or recovered.

Every cooler and piece of vending machine equipment CCE distributes comes from the centre. It is also home to CCE’s technical call centre and a support site for its field engineering and new business teams.

‘Proud’

“We are proud to be a truly local business, and our on-going investment marks the start of an exciting new era for our cold drink operations with everyone together in one building,”​ said Nick Collins, vice president of technical services at CCE GB.

CCE’s previous ops centre was located in Tongwell, near Milton Keynes, for 25 years. The new facility is close to CCE’s separate manufacturing site, which opened in Northfield in 1976 and is responsible for producing a number of brands across its product portfolio.
