Coca-Cola Consolidated Eyes Ridgeland, South Carolina, Operations Hub
“Coke Consolidated has a rich history in South Carolina, and this investment reinforces the commitment we have to the state. This new facility will help us operate more efficiently to better serve our retail customers and loyal customers throughout the region while creating jobs,” Coca-Cola Consolidated Branch Manager Steve Curtis explained.
The company will be bringing 45 existing jobs with the operation and creating at least 20 new jobs. Coca-Cola Consolidated has seven locations in South Carolina and employs more than 1,200 people in the state. The new facility will handle sales and distribution of Coca-Cola products throughout Allendale, Bamberg, Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper Counties.
“Coca-Cola has been an important partner to our state for a long time, employing over 1,200 South Carolinians. Every time a company like Coca-Cola decides to invest in South Carolina, it shows the world that there is no company too big or too small to find success here,” said Governor Henry McMaster.
“Jasper County welcomes Coca-Cola to our business and industrial community. We are proud that this highly-respected and globally-recognized American brand has chosen to grow their operations in our community. We also appreciate the jobs that this investment will bring because every job created affects a family in our region,” said Jasper County Council Chairman Marty Sauls.
“Southern Carolina Alliance salutes Coca-Cola for their commitment to creating jobs and investment in our region, and we look forward to working with the company in the years to come,” Southern Carolina Alliance Chairman Buddy Phillips said.
