Pepsi coming to county

A new business is coming to North Warrick Industrial Park.

Pepsi is close to completion on building a new distribution center in the industrial park.

Warrick County Economic Development Executive Director Larry Taylor said construction started on the facility this past spring and is close to being finished. The new facility will bring 130 jobs to Warrick County, including officestaff, drivers, mechanics , forklift operators and sales positions.

“They were looking for a central location,” he said. “Then we worked with a local developer to get them here.”

Taylor said the park, located near the intersection of Interstate 64 and Interstate 69, was the perfect location for the distribution center. Since the park’s inception in 2003, several businesses have come to the park. But, there are still 200 acres available to be developed into industrial sites.

“We have an industrial park that has everything ready to go because the county made the investment,” he said. “We had the available land for Pepsi to come here and bring those jobs to the county. We’re pleased with that.”
