One of the oldest and largest beverage packaging companies in the Southeastern (according to their website) is now planning to build a massive new bottling facility Mooresville.
The Iredell County Economic Development Corporation announced this week that Atlanta-based Battle Copacking will be building a new $13.6 million 128,000 sqft facility to supply our region’s ever growing demand for canned and bottled beverages.
“I cannot begin to explain how excited I am about this project,” said Battle’s Executive Vice-President Jerry Kaufman in a press release. “My wife and I moved to Mooresville in 2015 after looking for the perfect place to live and raise children. Since then, I have been looking for an opportunity to invest in the area, and Battle Copacking is the perfect opportunity. We plan to bring great jobs that perfectly suit the deep skilled labor pool that exists here. The resources found in this area are fantastic, and we are excited to grow with the community.”
The new Mooresville plant will be built in Mooresville’s Deerfield Business Park about 45 minutes north of Charlotte. Its expected to add at least 20 new full time jobs to the region with an above average salary for Iredell County (the current average is $51,136/year).
