CONCORD – 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 and investing more than $740 million in the City of Concord by 2027.

“Global manufacturers need a world-class workforce to support their expansion plans,” said Gov. Roy Cooper. “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.”

The companies will develop a state-of-the-art campus for beverage manufacturing, can filling and distribution. Cumulatively, this high-tech beverage production hub will span 2 million square feet of vertical integration to include office space at The Grounds at Concord.

“The decision by these innovative companies to choose Cabarrus County creates game-changing employment opportunities for our citizens,” said state Sen. Paul Newton (R-Cabarrus).
