Just before Labor Day, Carvana said it will locate a new inspection and reconditioning facility in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, stating that over the next few years, it will invest more than $30 million in Concord, N.C.
The company’s new North Carolina project will feature a facility to inspect, recondition, photograph and store cars.
Carvana said facilities such as these take in and prepare used vehicles to then retail online. The procedure includes a 150-point inspection and a photography process that uses high-definition cameras and what the company describes as “patented, proprietary technology.”
“Carvana has been growing extremely rapidly over the last several years and we are working to bring ‘The New Way to Buy a Car’ to even more customers all the time,” Carvana director of infrastructure development and operations Benjamin Morens said.
“As part of our efforts to scale the business, we’re looking forward to working with Cabarrus County and the state of North Carolina to open a vehicle inspection and reconditioning center, and become a member of the Concord community,” Morens continued.
The location of the facility will create more than 400 jobs, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said in a news release.
“The online marketplace only works for buyers and sellers when hardworking people are moving the supply chain forward,” Cooper said. “We know our quality workforce is a major reason why Carvana chose to grow and invest in our state.”
