Carolina Canners, Inc. expanding Chesterfield County operations
An independent Pepsi bottler and production cooperative, Carolina Canners, Inc., is expanding its Chesterfield County operations. The $45 million capital investment is expected to generate 40 new jobs.
Operating in Cheraw, S.C. since 1968, Carolina Canners has expanded its South Carolina operations multiple times over the last 40 years. The facility specializes in bottle injection molding and features two bottle-filling production lines, two can-filling production lines and a fountain syrup production line. The company also serves as a joint purchasing agent for many of the region's other bottlers.
Located at 300 Highway 1 South in Cheraw, Carolina Canners' facility will be expanded by 45,000 square feet. Additionally, the company will be adding new, state-of-the-art equipment capable of hot-fill. The new hot-fill line will be used primarily to produce the Pepsi-Lipton Tea Partnership's fast-growing Pure Leaf, a premium iced tea brewed from real tea leaves.
Hiring for the new positions will begin in the second quarter of 2017, and those interested in joining the Carolina Canners team should visit the SC Works website.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.
