Infinity Meat Solutions has officially broken ground on their new facility at the Business Park. The 200,000-square-foot, $100 million state-of-the-art packaging facility will create 700 new jobs in Rhode Island, and 400 construction jobs. Infinity will join over 200 companies and nearly 12,000 workers who already call the Business Park home.
Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo cited the new arrival as more evidence of the administration’s focus on creating jobs. "With the creation of 700 new jobs and a $100 million facility in Quonset, Infinity Meat Solutions is committed to the future of Rhode Island," said Gov. Raimondo. "This groundbreaking is tangible proof that our economic development approach is working."
Infinity Meat Solutions is the latest exciting addition to the business park,” said Steven J. King, Managing Director of Quonset Development Corporation. “We look forward to watching their facility launch operations next year and their continued growth at Quonset.”
Rhode Island Commerce Corporation announced that the food processing company qualified for $1.9 million in Rebuild RI tax credits to support construction of the new facility in May of 2018. The company also received nearly $950,000 each year in Qualified Jobs incentives for up to 10 years.
“Infinity Meat Solutions considered many locations for their new facility, we are proud that they selected Rhode Island, joining more than 25 other companies that are recently landing or expanding in our state,” said RI Commerce Secretary Stefan Pryor, who also serves as chair of the QDC Board of Directors.
Infinity Meat Solutions is a subsidiary company of Retail Business Services, an affiliate of the Netherlands-based company Ahold Delhaize USA. Infinity’s expansion into Rhode Island will generate over $10 million in revenue for the state over the next ten years.
