Coca-Cola Bottling Company UNITED has initiated the construction of a new sales and distribution centre in McComb, Mississippi, US.

Expected to be operational in 2025, the facility represents an investment of approximately $15m and will create approximately 70 jobs and serve as a strategic hub for the region.

The forthcoming Coca-Cola McComb sales centre will occupy 12 acres in Gateway Industrial Park, strategically located off the Interstate 55 motorway.

The centre will comprise a warehouse, sales, and office spaces. It is expected to play a crucial role in distributing products to customers and other Coca-Cola facilities across South Mississippi and parts of Louisiana.

McComb Coca-Cola Sales Center manager Barney Albritton said: “We are proud to call mayor [Quordiniah] Lockley, the Pike County Board of Supervisors and other local and state officials partners in our mission to better serve our associates, customers and communities.

“Our new home here in McComb will enable us to provide a higher level of service for years to come.”

Pike County Board of Supervisors president Justin Lofton said: “The Pike County Board of Supervisors and Pike County Economic Development District’s investment in developing Gateway Industrial Park is paying off, and we are grateful to the leadership at Coca-Cola UNITED for their unwavering commitment to making our community home.”

Currently, Coca-Cola UNITED has over 10,000 associates located in more than 50 facilities across six south-eastern US states, including Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee.

In September 2023, bottler and distributor Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling unveiled plans to expand its operations at the existing facility in Rancho Cucamonga, California, with an investment of approximately $500m.
