Coca-Cola in Kenya looking to sell 10 year old facility

Coca-Cola based in Nairobi, Kenya is seeking a buyer or renter for its Nairobi Upperhill facility at a cost of Sh1.03 billion Kenyan shillings.

The four acres facility which was built in 2008 for Sh700 million ($10 million) acts as Coca-Cola headquarters in East and Central Africa which oversees operations in 14 African countries.

The company said it is moving into a new facility in Lavington, which it says is aimed at providing a modern workplace that enhances creativity and innovation among its staff.

“The new office location will allow the company achieve a new modernised space built to suit needs of a more agile, and even faster paced business,” Coca Cola general manager Ahmed Rady said.

“We want to provide our employees with the best work experience and one of the key projects, which are global, but we are working on here (in Nairobi office), is called “Workplace Vision 2020” where the space that we provide is more open, more collaborative. It also inspires creativity, innovation and is less formal and more comfortable with more hang-out places.”

The company also said it chose the new location because it was looking for a work station near residences and social amenities such as schools, shopping malls and restaurants.

Coca-Cola in Kenya employs an estimated 13,000 people directly in bottling activities and a further 700,000 through auxiliary services within the supply chain.
