COOLING & REFRIGERATION
We’re close to water, interstate and rail distribution, all with less congestion and faster turn times … meaning your cold products spend less time getting where they need to go. Nearby Port of Wilmington specializes in refrigerated transport, with almost 1,000 refrigerated container plugs on site. While other largescale (50,000+ square feet) facilities are full — and gateways like Miami and Philadelphia charge a premium — Brunswick can meet your cold storage transport needs with just a short drive to thousands of grocers.
FOOD PROCESSING & MANUFACTURING
Brunswick County’s proximity to transportation infrastructure, number of skilled workers and low business costs make the area ripe for food manufacturing and processing companies. Here, you’ll find supply chain access and government incentives that can help you take advantage of market opportunities.
You’ll find unparalleled power in Brunswick. Situated in close proximity to two energy producers — Duke Energy’s Brunswick Nuclear Power Plant and Sutton Power Plant — our abundant utilities can fuel your manufacturing needs without interruption.
Navigable throughout the County, Cape Fear and Brunswick Rivers provide significant raw water, discharge opportunity and barge access site options. The area is home to one of the highest crane productivity rates on the East Coast. What’s more, the Port of Wilmington is experiencing rapid growth, with recent channel advancements, dock-rail access, container tonnage and quick turnarounds fueling further advancement. To that end, the Port’s new cold storage facilities tripled refrigerated container business since 2014.
WAREHOUSE & LOGISTICS
Affordable land, interstates, highways, the Port of Wilmington, railways and air service all make Brunswick County an ideal location for distribution, logistics and warehousing operations. This robust network of rail, road and sky links our area to lucrative markets across the Eastern Seaboard.
