Molson Coors Selects Hixson for Multi-Million Expansion Project
Last week, Molson Coors held a groundbreaking ceremony to kick-off the construction of a 200,000 SF variety packing warehouse adjacent to their brewery in Ft. Worth, Texas. In particular, the $65 million project, designed and engineered by Hixson, will:
- Include a state-of-the-art variety pack system capable of packaging up to six different flavors in 12- or 24-pack configurations and repacking up to 1.5 million barrels annually.
- Allow the brewery to remove third-party vendors for final pack assembly, which the company believes will help alleviate shipping costs and improve time to market.
- Enhance the Ft. Worth brewery’s ability to internalize storage, packaging, shipping and logistics of variety-packed can beverages.
- Enable Molson Coors to use the facility for future brands the company develops as part of its ambition to expand its portfolio beyond the beer aisle.
According to Jim Crawford, Vice President and Plant Manager for Molson Coors, the expansion “truly represents the next step toward strengthening our in-house hard seltzer capabilities, as its one of many recent investments we made at Fort Worth aimed at growing our above premium portfolio and transforming the company’s offerings to meet consumers’ changing preferences.”
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2022. Follow Hixson on LinkedIn and this blog for future updates!
