MillerCoors announces $60 million expansion in Rockingham County
MillerCoors, a joint venture between SABMiller and Molson Coors Brewing Co., announced Friday it will invest $60 million to expand its Shenandoah brewery in Rockingham County. The project is expected to create 27 new jobs.
The company makes Coors Light, Miller Lite, Miller High Life, Coors Banquet, Redd’s and Henry’s Hard Soda. MillerCoors also brews Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy and Blue Moon Belgian White Ale.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe approved a $500,000 performance-based grant from the Virginia Investment Partnership program for the program, an incentive available to existing Virginia companies.
MillerCoors also will be eligible to receive sales and use tax exemptions on manufacturing equipment.
Funding and services to support employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
