Nespresso begin work on production centre expansion


Nespresso has started work on its $178million expansion to its production centre in Romont, Switzerland.

The construction of the second production hall started this month and is expected to be fully operational by June 2022. 

It will result in an augmented capacity of 10 new production lines dedicated to producing Nespresso coffees for the Vertuo and Professional ranges and the creation of 300 new direct jobs in the next 10 years while increasing third party employment and local and regional business development. 

The Romont factory, inaugurated in 2015, is the centre of excellence for the production of Nespresso’s Vertuo coffees now available in 21 countries across North America, Europe and Asia. 

Nespresso’s coffee pods are made using aluminium and are infinitely recyclable.

“Despite the challenging times we have all been living in, this strategic long term investment reconfirms Nespresso‘s continuous business success and leadership in the portioned coffee segment, which we pioneered back in 1986,” said Guillaume Le Cunff, CEO of Nespresso

“It also demonstrates our continued commitment to our Swiss roots and to the long term economic development of the region and the country, with which we share values of quality, innovation and expertise.”
