Raleigh, N.C.– Governor Pat McCrory and North Carolina Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker recently announced that USA InvestCo plans to create 100 jobs and invest more than $15 million in a new cold storage facility at the Port of Wilmington.

The company is developing the Port of Wilmington Cold Storage facility (PWCS), a 75,000-square-foot cold storage facility that will store locally produced pork, poultry, fruits and vegetables. PWCS could eventually be expanded to 300,000 square feet depending on demand.

“North Carolina and the Greater Wilmington region have become a very desirable site for companies to locate and expand their operations,” said Governor McCrory.  “With the need for secure, cold storage growing throughout North Carolina, we welcome USA InvestCo’s investment.”

“We’re delighted about USA InvestCo joining the ranks of companies expanding and developing in North Carolina,” said N.C. Secretary of Commerce Sharon Decker.  “This major project will be a great asset for local and state companies that need cold storage facilities to ship their products from Wilmington’s port.”

The Port of Wilmington Cold Storage facility will be developed by USA InvestCo using the EB-5 program.  This project is USA InvestCo’s second EB-5 project in the Wilmington area.
