Coca-Cola Bottlers Phils., Inc. (CCBPI) is speeding up the construction of its multi-billion mega bottling facility located at Villanueva, Misamis Oriental as shown in the latest pictures at the site.
The previous photos taken onsite where last June and heavy equipment were still in the earthfilling and compacting stage. Six months later, the main frontage is almost done and the structural steel frames of the main buildings are already standing. The rush should be attributed to the high demand of CCBPI’s beverage products in the region.
Accordingly, all production lines in their Cagayan de Oro facility along CM Recto will be transferred to the new site, perhaps one production line at a time? Once vacated, their CDO facility will be converted into a warehouse but rumors are circulating that talks are ongoing for a large investor negotiating to acquire the property which is a prime location for a commercial undertaking.
More photos below.
Photo below shows the project site on the right upon approaching Katipunan junction in Villanueva. Guess there’s a dire need to expand the highway on this part.
Based on the plan, the frontage will have space allocations for 35 vehicles for employees and 35 vehicles for visitors. The right side (facing the complex) is where the long hauler trucks will park. More wide spaces inside the complex for the trucks to maneuver.
There will also be six production lines: 3 recyclable glass bottles (RGB) lines, 1 nrPET (non-recyclable Polyethylene) lines and 2 lines for bottled drinking water as shown below.
