USD 70 million project planned

Austria-based blow molder Alpla Inc . will supply bottles to Sunny Delight Beverages Co. as part of a $70 million project to purchase and reopen a plant in Sherman Texas. Alpla will provide on-site bottle manufacturing for the Cincinnati-based drink company. The Sherman plant formerly housed a Folgers coffee operation.

Alpla’s production will include a new square gallon bottle design that SunnyD touts for being easy to pour, said Ellen Iobst, senior vice president of manufacturing and technology for Sunny Delight.
Jodok Schaeffler, general manager of Alpla North America, said the blow molding operation will employ 18 workers.
