South Atlantic Canners, a Coca-Cola production cooperative that includes several Coca-Cola distributors, has announced plans to expand its Lee County operations, a $28.7 million project.
“We are proud to announce South Atlantic Canners’ second expansion in Lee County. Anytime an existing industry continues to grow in the state, it proves that South Carolina provides a competitive business environment where companies find sustained success,” said secretary of commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.
Located at 601 Cousar Street in Bishopville, South Atlantic Canners plans to renovate its existing facility and add new, state-of-the-art equipment.
The expansion is expected to be complete by the end of 2027.
“This investment reinforces the commitment of Coca-Cola distributors to manufacture our products in Lee County and South Carolina,” said South Atlantic Canners, senior plant director Troy Santoscoy. “This investment will positively impact our ability to serve our team, customers and communities, and hopefully encourages future economic development in the region.”
