Unix Packaging, a California-based contract manufacturer of branded and private label beverages, plans to create 226 new jobs in Burke County.

The company will invest $19 million to locate its first East Coast manufacturing facility in Morganton.

Headquartered in Montebello, CA, Unix will establish its third plant for manufacturing, bottling, and packaging beverage products for well-known national retailers. In addition to its Morganton production facility, the company will also operate a warehouse for storage of raw materials and finished products.

The North Carolina Department of Commerce led a collaborative state effort to attract the company. A performance-based grant of $500,000 from the One North Carolina Fund will help facilitate Unix’s location to Burke County.
