EMISA, the industrial arm of Grupo Plaenge, has completed construction of a new 33 390 sq.m. plant for Coca-Cola in Maringá, Brazil. The new facility has been declared as environmentally friendly, built using sustainable materials. The prefect for Maringá, Silvio Barros, said Emisa had shown “extreme competence”, adding that it should be an incentive for the market to adopt a sustainable model. The director of Emisa, Evaldo Fabian, emphasised that sustainability was the future. “It means that we will create less of an impact, in construction terms and also throughout the facility’s lifespan,” he said. The vice president of Coca-Cola Brazil, Rino Abbondi, added that the project carried out by Emisa “was in line” with what Coca-Cola does in the country.
