Beverage distributor Pepsi Bottling Ventures (PBV) is set to open a new distribution centre in Robeson County, North Carolina (NC), US.

Once completed, the $16.5m facility will help create around 300 jobs over the next five years.

PBV will receive a performance-based grant of up to $150,000 from One North Carolina Fund through the respective local government to establish the new centre.

The project will also receive a $400,000 grant from North Carolina State’s Economic Infrastructure Programme.

Various other states, regional and local allies worked with Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC) and NC Commerce are also supporting PBV’s expansion plans in the state.

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory said: “This expansion will continue to strengthen North Carolina’s position as one of the fastest growing economies in the nation.
