DrinkPak expands in Texas
Contract manufacturer of canned beverages, DrinkPak, has announced it is establishing two new locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in the US.
The facilities, totaling approximately 2.8 million square feet, will be strategically positioned at Trammel Crow development at 35 Eagle on I-35W and Eagle Parkway, and at Carter Park East. These new facilities will cater to the production of various beverages, including energy drinks, sodas, waters, hard seltzers, canned cocktails, milk and milk-alternative beverages like canned cold brew and oat milk-based drinks.
“We are thrilled to expand our advanced manufacturing organisation in Fort Worth and look forward to creating new jobs, working with local businesses, and becoming an integral part of the community,” Nate Patena, chief executive officer of DrinkPak, told the Fort Worth Report. “The City of Fort Worth, Denton County and Tarrant County have been incredible partners in this process, and we are grateful for the opportunity to build two new state-of-the-art facilities that will enable us to manufacture more high-quality drinks for the best brands in the world.”
According to the company, the project could create about 1,000 jobs and represents a $452 million investment in Fort Worth.
