Refresco, an independent bottler for retailers and brand-name beverages in North America and Europe, will expand its Greer operations for the second time this year.

The company, located at 1990 Hood Road, announced through the Greenville Area Development Corporation (GADC), it will create 40 new jobs in a multimillion-dollar investment project. Refresco added 25 new jobs during an expansion completed in the spring.

“The entire team at Refresco in Greer has worked hard to earn this opportunity to grow the business. I couldn’t be prouder of the employees I have the privilege to lead and represent,” said Refresco Greer Plant Manager William Wise.  “They have demonstrated consistency in manufacturing excellence, and as a result, have attracted new business and new customers. We are excited to take this next step and to build on our success.”

“Refresco is an excellent corporate citizen and valued member of the Greer community, and widely known for delivering quality and cost advantages to beverage customers around the world. We congratulate them on their continuing success and expansion and are proud to have Refresco call the city of Greer home,” said Greer Mayor Rick Danner.

Refresco’s latest expansion will ensure that the Greer operation has the manufacturing, packaging, processing and quality testing scale and flexibility needed by customers as demand continues to grow.  Globally, Refresco is focused on providing total beverage solutions to customers with innovative products, added-value service and use of sustainable materials. Additional packaging, processing and quality testing equipment will be procured as part of this expansion.

“Refresco extends the lineage of one of Greenville County’s most venerable companies. Among the world’s largest independent beverage bottlers for retail brands, Refresco packages everything from fruit juices to sports drinks,” stated Greenville County Council Chairman and GADC member H.G. “Butch” Kirven.  “We congratulate Refresco on this expansion, and appreciate its commitment to customers, employees and communities in Greenville County.”

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $100,000 Set-Aside grant to Greenville County to assist with costs related to this project.

The project is expected to be completed by late December 2020.
