August 11, 2017 – On Friday afternoon, Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) took part in a yearly picnic thrown by the Coca-Cola bottling company in the Hauppauge Industrial Park. Opened in 1990, this location has been responsible for distributing Coca-Cola products throughout both Nassau and Suffolk County.

Legislator Leslie Kennedy went to break bread with and to see where many hard working men and women in Suffolk County spend their days working at the Coca Cola distribution plant. This plant employs over four hundred and thirty associates the majority of which reside in Suffolk County and are members of Local 812 Teamsters Union. Coca Cola is also committed to the environment. They plan to connect to the sewer district in the near future in order to protect our groundwater.

Legislator Kennedy spent much time visiting the facility and talking with the people who run the operation. “I was impressed with the working men and women who deal with the distribution of Coke products on such a large scale here on Long Island, it was delight to learn more about their green initiatives, which is of the utmost importance here on Long Island, we need to keep our island clean,” said Legislator Kennedy.
