Full-service coffee roasting and beverage ingredients company Westrock Coffee Company is expanding its financial operations through a “Financial Shared Services Center” at the S&D Coffee & Tea headquarters in North Carolina.
Little Rock, Arkansas-based Westrock completed a $405 million acquisition of S&D, in January of 2020, although the COVID-19 pandemic that followed precipitated widespread job losses at the S&D facility in Concord, North Carolina.
