CABARRUS COUNTY, N.C. — Red Bull and filling company Rauch will partner to build a new beverage manufacturing, filling and distribution center in Cabarrus County, creating more than 400 new jobs, Governor Roy Cooper announced Tuesday.
The combined project is expected to invest more than $740 million in the City of Concord by 2027.
“Global manufacturers need a world-class workforce to support their expansion plans,” Cooper said. “In North Carolina, Red Bull and Rauch have chosen the largest manufacturing workforce in the Southeast and a resilient business climate with an excellent transportation infrastructure to support their long-term growth.”
Together, the companies will partner to develop a state-of-the-art campus for beverage manufacturing, can filling and distribution. The beverage production hub will span 2,000,000-square-feet of vertical integration to include office space at The Grounds at Concord.
The North Carolina Department of Commerce led the state’s efforts to support Red Bull and Rauch’s decision to locate to North Carolina.
“We are excited to see the partnership that Red Bull and Rauch are creating here in North Carolina,” North Carolina Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders said. “Like this partnership, North Carolina’s success is supported by strong economic and workforce development partnerships, which will continue to attract growing companies that are creating good paying jobs and impactful investments statewide.”
