Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) has announced the acquisition of the PT San Miguel Indonesia Food and Beverages non-alcoholic beverage bottling assets in Jakarta, Indonesia in a deal worth A$45m (($47m).
CCA’s acquisition follows the decision of San Miguel to leave the production of non-alcoholic beverages in Jakarta. The assets include a 20,000m² beverage production facility, which consists of a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottling line and a 5,000m² warehouse.
CCA group managing director Terry Davis said the company will also install an additional carbonated soft drink PET line, increasing its Indonesian PET production capacity by 20% over the next one year.
"The acquisition of this large and modern facility is a very important acquisition for CCA as it fast tracks our expansion plans for the Jakarta region, providing a well located complement to our Cibitung manufacturing operations," Davis said.
San Miguel’s bottling facility can add a further three beverage production lines which could increase PET capacity in Indonesia by 35-40%.
