Coca-Cola to shut down Frederick, Md. plant

FREDERICK, Md. Coca-Cola Enterprises is planning to close operations at its Frederick county distribution plant by the end of March, citing growth constraints.

The announcement was made last month to the site’s 52 employees, with plans to relocate most of them to of the company’s 10 other facilities in Maryland, including Rockville and Hagerstown.

With Coca-Cola’s truck traffic increasing, the 100-year-old Frederick site has little room to accommodate them and cannot expand the 21,000-square-food building. Instead, the Atlanta-based company will shift to other locations around Maryland, despite the building’s 60-year history housing the Coca-Cola company.
