On April 27, PepsiCo held a grand opening event for its new concentrate plant in Singapore, a 215,000+ square-foot facility that will manufacture and ship hundreds of beverage product recipes to bottlers throughout the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. The plant will serve as a local beverage hub that will accommodate faster, more streamlined deliveries to its markets––driving cost efficiencies for PepsiCo’s business in the region.
In keeping with Singapore’s efficient land use directive, the plant was designed to operate vertically (as opposed to a more traditional single-story design), making it the company’s first concentrate facility to operate throughout multiple floors. Many sustainable design elements––ranging from building materials to manufacturing equipment––were also incorporated to increase energy efficiency. See infographic to learn more about the facility and check out the time-lapse video of the construction, above.
