“I cannot begin to explain how excited I am about this project. My wife and I moved to Mooresville in 2015 after looking for the perfect place to live and raise children. Since then, I have been looking for an opportunity to invest in the area, and Battle Copacking is the perfect opportunity," Jerry Kaufman, executive vice president of strategic development, said. "We plan to bring great jobs that perfectly suit the deep skilled labor pool that exists here.  The resources found in this area are fantastic, and we are excited to grow with the community."
