Cott Beverages Plans $10 Million Warehouse-Distribution Center In Greer, South Carolina

Cott Beverages , U.S. subsidiary of Cott Corporation, one of the world’s largest producers of beverages on behalf of retailers, brand owners and distributors, is expanding its existing operations, warehouse and distribution center in Greer, South Carolina. The new facility represents a $10 million investment Greenville County.

Expansion of the company’s Greer, South Carolina campus, which produces fruit and vegetable juices and beverages for national brand and retailer-brand customers, is being achieved with the opening of this new warehouse and distribution center.

Construction of the 190,000-square-foot facility, which will be located adjacent to Cott’s existing manufacturing facility in Greer, South Carolina, began in September 2014. The new center will allow the company to better serve its growing customer base while alleviating traffic congestion on local roadways. The facility is expected to eliminate approximately 30 tractor-trailer trucks per weekday in each direction on Wade Hampton Boulevard between Greer and Taylors, S.C.

“We are grateful to the Greer Development Corporation for supporting this initiative upon its conception two years ago. We would like to express gratitude to the administrative offices of the City of Greer, Greer CPW and Greer Fire Department on Hood Road for their support throughout the development and construction period. This project is the result of a joint effort by many individuals and is a testament to the City of Greer and its culture of supporting the economic prosperity of its businesses and citizens, Cott Beverages Plant Manager William Wise said.

“Greer continues to be a hub of choice for enterprise-sized companies. Our city’s physical location in the center of the I-85 corridor is a big appeal for companies like Cott Beverages, offering quick and easy access to East Coast customers. We see this expansion and organic growth from established area businesses, to be a good indication of the overall thriving business climate in the area,” Mayor Rick Danner explained.

“We’re thrilled that Cott Beverages is adding a warehouse and distribution center to their already established manufacturing facility in Greer. The decision to stay in Greer and expand capabilities at their existing location reinforces the benefits of doing business in this city and Greenville County,” Chairman of the Greenville Area Development Corporation Dick Wilkerson added.
