Plexus Corp. is continuing its 10-year collaboration with The Coca-Cola Company to manufacture the newest iteration of the Coca-Cola Freestyle—the Coca-Cola Freestyle 9100 Fountain Dispenser. Features include a 24-inch, high-definition touchscreen, new operating system and Bluetooth connectivity.

Plexus has been providing manufacturing, engineering and aftermarket services since the initial Freestyle contract award in 2009. Under the new, extended agreement, Plexus will also provide reliability and test solutions in support of Coca-Cola's sustainability priorities.

Andy Hyatt, Plexus Senior Vice President – Global Customer Solutions, comments, "In 2009, The Coca-Cola Company came to Plexus with a revolutionary idea for a beverage delivery experience. The award of this next-generation dispenser further solidifies their desire to continue to leverage Plexus' full suite of solutions and our ability to support their entire product life cycle. We are proud of our ten-year partnership with The Coca-Cola Company and we look forward to helping bring the newest member of the Freestyle family to life."

Plexus' production for Coca-Cola is housed at multiple manufacturing locations within the North America region, including Plexus' manufacturing facility in Appleton, Wisconsin.
