Some of the preliminary work needed for Anheuser-Busch’s $150 million new investment into the Cartersville campus is under way.
On July 15, the “planning schematics” for the company’s expansion were posted, per Dodge Data & Projects. In January 2020, AB announced plans for an $85 million expansion that would lead to 12 more jobs. Then in late October, the brewer upped the project to $150 million. As planned, it will “support new brewing capabilities, the creation of a new can line, and will generate new efficiencies in the brewing process as the company continues to lead in meeting evolving consumer demand.”
The brewery employs more than 500 people and contributes more than $400 million annually to Georgia’s economy. Opened in 1993, the Cartersville brewery brews more than 20 Anheuser-Busch beer brands and is the original producer of emergency drinking water for the company’s disaster relief program.
The company earlier announced “the planned investment of more than $1 billion over the next two years in our work and workplaces to drive economic prosperity in communities across the U.S.”
