McKesson grand opening set for Tuesday

The results of one of the largest corporate investments ever made in Caroline County will be on display Tuesday morning.

A grand opening is scheduled Tuesday at McKesson Corp.’s 340,000-square-foot, $50 million distribution center just off Interstate 95 in the Carmel Church area.

The giant San Francisco-based company will distribute pharmaceuticals and healthcare products to a large variety of retail and institutional accounts from the plant, which created about 150 jobs for Caroline.

Caroline’s Board of Supervisors agreed to provide up to $460,000 in incentives and infrastructure improvements for the plant. Caroline officials hope the infrastructure work completed for the facility will attract other corporate investments in the area.

Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling is scheduled to give the keynote address at Tuesday’s grand opening event.
