11/13/2014 - Coca-Cola Moving to Waterbury


Coca-Cola Refreshments USA, Inc. will be relocating their current operation from Naugatuck Industrial Park to Chase River Road in Waterbury.

The company has leased a 53,000-square-foot warehouse/distribution facility at 479 Chase River Road.  The property is owned by Napoli Foods and was their former food distribution facility. Napoli had relocated to a larger facility in Cheshire.

Coca-Cola's new facility will be located near the redevelopment project currently underway by the City of Waterbury of the former Chase Brass property on Chase River Road and Thomaston Ave.

Located at the entry and exit ramps to Route 8 just north of I-84, the Chase River Road location has proven to be attractive to businesses that rely on easy access to Connecticut's highway systems. The location is also in the Waterbury Enterprise Zone. Coca-Cola expects to complete its extensive renovation of the property and be operating their distribution business in Waterbury by January 1, 2015. Bob Bowden of the R. Calabrese Agency represented the Landlord, Napoli Foods, and Joel Housman of Colonial Realty represented Coca-Cola in this transaction.
