Coca-Cola UNITED: Revitalizing Birmingham with New Office and Bottling Plant by 125th Anniversary

Published on 13 June 2024 at 23:08

The story of Coca-Cola in Birmingham began in 1902 with one man, $12,000, and one associate. That vision grew into Coca-Cola UNITED, now the third largest bottler of Coca-Cola products in the US, which has employed five generations of family and friends along with thousands of Alabamians over the past 122 years. The choice to redevelop a brownfield site in the Kingston community is a testament to the commitment between the City of Birmingham, State of Alabama, and Coca-Cola UNITED. In approximately three years, on the 125th Anniversary of Coca-Cola’s presence in Alabama, the area will be able to see the completion of a 150,000 square-foot corporate office complex and a 350,000 ft.² bottling plant - visible on land and from the air. Thank you, Coca-Cola UNITED, for investing in our people. #Our67
