Niagara Bottling, LLC will establish a 450,000-square-foot, highly automated manufacturing and bottling operation in the City of Mesa, AZ. The private-label bottled water supplier will invest $76 million in the facility and will create 45 to 55 new jobs. The company expects to begin construction of the facility within the Elliot Road Technology Corridor this month and begin production in the first quarter of 2018.
“Niagara Bottling, LLC is a responsible family-owned company that is committed to supporting our local community, our team members and our environment. We are very proud to announce Mesa, AZ as the home of our newest beverage manufacturing facility and look forward to maintaining leadership in the areas of innovation, supply chain efficiencies, and overall environmental stewardship,” said Brian Hess, Executive Vice President at Niagara. “We are very proud of our efforts to provide healthy beverages to our customers, first responders, and charitable partners.”
Niagara Bottling supplies major retailers across the nation. Headquartered in Ontario, CA, the company began as a family business in 1963 by offering five-gallon containers for home and office delivery. Niagara expanded in the early 1990s to offer single-serve private label bottled water for grocery, club, convenience, and wholesale customers.
The City of Mesa, Arizona Commerce Authority, and the Greater Phoenix Economic Council worked in partnership to bring Niagara Bottling’s manufacturing facility to Mesa’s Elliot Road Technology Corridor.
“Niagara is the latest in a string of manufacturing firms selecting Arizona, joining a thriving industry that provided more than $24 billion to our state’s economy in 2016,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “We applaud Niagara’s commitment to 100 percent of its bottles and caps being recyclable and we thank them for their commitment to and investment in Arizona.”
“The new Niagara Bottling manufacturing facility in Mesa will add quality jobs and tens of millions of dollars in capital investment in our communities,” said Chris Camacho, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “We join our partners in welcoming Niagara to Mesa, Arizona, and look forward to their future success.”
