The new, state-of-the-art 115,000 sq. ft facility in Sparks, NV, increases production capacity, shortens delivery times and provides customers with a third beverage innovation center in the USA.
Sparks, Nevada. (November 20, 2020) – Monin, the leader in the beverage and premium flavoring industry, with more than 100 years of experience, just opened its second North American manufacturing facility located in Sparks, Nevada. This west coast operation is located just 20 minutes from the Reno airport. The 115,000 sq foot facility includes full flavor processing and bottling as well as warehouse distribution for the western USA, Mexico and Canada.
The Sparks facility, built by Kentucky-based construction company Gray, will eventually double capacity for Monin Americas, adding to the output that the Clearwater, Florida, headquarters plant has been producing since 1995. What’s more is that this new facility also has a state-of-the-art innovation flavor café where visiting Monin customers can experience creative beverage development and operational training, utilizing the 200+ Monin clean label flavoring products.
“We are very excited to now offer a more convenient location for so many restaurant and coffeehouse operators on the west coast,” says Bill Lombardo, CEO at Monin Americas. “The capabilities we now have in Sparks should help our customers not only with speed to market but with even more menu innovation and beverage development solutions.”
Originally set to open in March 2020, the facility was delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. The facility is now officially open, with bottles coming off the lines daily. The facility will employ a full staff of beverage innovation, management and manufacturing personnel, with plans to increase headcount by 25% in 2021 to support expanding volume.
