NEW BROCKTON, Ala. (AP) — A food and distribution firm plans to build a $100 million distribution center in southeast Alabama.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey on Wednesday announced the Coffee County facility being built by Texas-based Ben E. Keith Co.

Al.com reports that the project is expected to create 80 direct jobs during the next five years.

Construction of the facility in New Brockton is expected to begin by December, with a scheduled completion date by December 2021.

New Brockton is about 80 miles (129 kilometers) southeast of Montgomery, Alabama.
