PepsiAmericas to open Romanian bottling plant
PepsiAmericas, the second largest bottler of Pepsi beverage products, said that it will invest $150 million to build a bottling plant in Romania.
The factory, expected to open on Sept 1, is the latest investment that the Minneapolis-based company has made in the fast growing region of Eastern Europe. In 2007, PepsiAmericas took control of Quadrant-Amroq Bottling QAB, a Pepsi distributor in Romania.
Earlier this month, Purchase-based PepsiCo said it was buying PepsiAmericas and another major bottler, Somers-based Pepsi Bottling Group, as part of a $7.8 billion deal.
