Equipos de Clase Mundial

A leading characteristic of the Lindley Corporation has been its flexibility to meet changes in the global economy and its drive to accept challenges to improve their market position. It has gone through a series of transformations ranging from (i) the strategic alliance between Lindley Corporation and The Coca-Cola Company (TCCC) in 2004 making Corporation Lindley the official bottler of Coca-Cola in Peru to (ii) the initiative to enable Lindley to continue its progress towards becoming a world-class company through the implementation of MDW®. The executives have declared this second objective to be the key driver.
