According to Kate Lucynzski, general manager of Coca-Cola Bottling, the new facility will be “job neutral,” meaning no positions will be added or eliminated.
Still, Lucynzski said the plant is “always hiring,” and encouraged locals to apply when jobs become available.
The new facility is expected to open in May of next year.
