Coca-Cola of Northern New England's Steven Perrelli will share the details of Gov. Malloy's recent visit to Coca Cola's new facility in Waterford, CT.

Perrilli, an active participant in CVA and vocal vending industry advocate, was among those who arranged the governor's tour of Coca-Cola of Southeastern New England's new distribution and vending machine service center in Waterford.

He took the opportunity to point out to the governor that Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of Southeastern New England, a subsidiary of Coca-Cola of Northern New England, has been an important contributor to the business in the region. The plant now employs 110 and distributes more than 3 million cases of Coca-Cola products annually in Connecticut and parts of Rhode Island. Coca-Cola officials hosting the event also thanked Malloy for fostering a positive business environment in Connecticut.

The sprawling 85,000 sq.ft. facility combines operations formerly housed in two states into a single more efficient and eco-friendly facility. It includes warehouse space, a truck maintenance depot, a vending machine service shop and a drive-through loading dock, along with administrative offices.
