Coca-Cola Bottling Company United, Inc. (UNITED) recently broke ground on an $85 million expansion of its Macon, Georgia, sales center. The project includes expanding the existing warehouse, installing a state-of-the-art warehousing system and optimizing distribution operations that will benefit associates, customers and communities in Macon-Bibb County and surrounding areas. The expansion is also expected to generate approximately 50 new jobs.

Birmingham, Alabama-based Brasfield & Gorrie is the lead contractor for the project. Construction is slated to begin during the first quarter of 2023.

“We’re honored that Coca-Cola Bottling Company United is leaning on our decades of industrial construction experience to expand this warehouse,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Michael Tortorici. “With more than 450 industrial projects under our belts, we’re energized by complex projects.”
