FOREST GROVE, Ore. & KENNEWICK, Wash.--()--Lieb Foods, LLC, a leading food and beverage contract manufacturer, today announced a multi-million dollar investment in its Kennewick, WA facility to install a new canned beverage production line. Supplementing the company’s manufacturing of beverages, sauces, dressings and jams, the Kennewick facility specializes in single-serve PET beverages. This investment expands the facility’s capabilities to include hot-fill, cold-fill, carbonated and pasteurized beverages in aluminum cans. Operational this month, the new line will provide flexibility to better serve customers’ needs and accommodate various can and batch sizes.
President Jim Lieb commented, “Our goal is to be a one-stop, world- class packaging source for our customers. We see a trend toward high-quality, cost-effective aluminum cans, which is one of our specialties. With the growth in tea, energy drinks, and specialty waters, there is tremendous momentum in this market. The new line will extend our capabilities so that our customers can continue to receive excellent quality and service, and, in turn, expand their own operations. As we continue to grow and meet the increased demand for top-notch beverage packaging, we help them save on shipping costs and simplify logistics, while enabling them to source all of their Western U.S. and Canada manufacturing needs in one place with a trusted supplier.”
