News : Fefurbished Coca-Cola Operations Centre Opens in Milton Keynes
Milton Keynes, UK, May 1, 2015 -- Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) has opened its newly refurbished Operations Centre (OC) in Milton Keynes.
Creating new jobs for 160 people, the new operations centre - located on Yeomans Drive - is responsible for the purchase, distribution and refurbishment of all CCE's cold drink equipment in shops and businesses throughout Great Britain (GB).
Every cooler and piece of vending machine equipment that CCE distributes comes from the OC. It is also home to CCE's Technical Call Centre (TCC), and operates as a support function for its Field Engineering and New Business teams.
The building itself incorporates a number of energy efficient features, including a heat recovery system and movement activated lighting, supporting CCE's ambition to reduce the carbon footprint of the drink in the consumer's hand by a third by 2020.
The site also sends zero waste to landfill meaning all waste is either recycled or recovered.
Nick Collins, VP Technical Services at Coca-Cola Enterprises GB, said: "We are really delighted with our new look Operations Centre in Milton Keynes.
"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."
