Nespresso has begun the expansion of its production center in Romont, Switzerland. The CHF 160 million investment in this new structure will help meet increasing consumer demand for Nespresso's high-quality premium coffees and support international development in the coming years.
The second production hall will help double the production capacity with 10 new lines dedicated to Nespresso Vertuo and Professional coffee ranges. The first new production lines are expected to be fully operational by June 2022. The expansion will also create 300 new jobs by 2030. The recruitment for the new site has already begun and over 100 people will be hired by the end of this year.
"I am delighted that the first stone of our new production hall in Romont has been laid. This foundation illustrates our Swiss and regional roots and symbolizes the continued success of Nespresso. It is a story that began in 1986, and it is with great joy that we write a new chapter today. All those involved can be proud of this great adventure," said Guillaume Le Cunff, CEO of Nespresso.
