DOUGLASVILLE - Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. will open a manufacturing facility in Douglas County, creating approximately 550 jobs and investing $337 million over the next five years.<br />
The facility will support the production of pods for the company's new Keurig Cold platform, an in-home cold beverage system that will give consumers a way to quickly produce their favorite cold beverage brands with the same one-touch system used in Keurig's hot beverage applications. <br />
Keurig will be taking applications online this fall for a variety of job opportunities at the Douglasville plant, including production, maintenance, engineering, materials management, safety, facilities, continuous learning, IT, quality, and more. <br />
"Keurig's new facility is a great addition to Georgia's already diverse manufacturing industry and will provide many good jobs for our citizens," said Gov. Nathan Deal. "The fact that the company has chosen to manufacture its new product line in Georgia is a testament to our skilled workforce and logistics infrastructure."<br />
