Niagara Bottling LLC, Ontario, Calif. announced plans to build a new $56 million, 469,000-square-foot manufacturing and bottling plant in the River Ridge Commerce Center in Jeffersonville, Ind., the company says.
In addition, the current Plainfield operation will undergo a $6.1 million expansion, bringing a total investment of $62 million in southern Indiana, states the Indiana Economic Development Council (IEDC).
“The state of Indiana and local community partners in the Jeffersonville region have provided an extremely warm welcome for Niagara Bottling’s proposed new manufacturing facility, said Brian Hess, executive vice president of Niagara Bottling, in a statement. “We have been impressed by the region’s progressive workforce development programs and support system, which will benefit our attempt to add area residents to our Niagara team in southern Indiana.”
The investments will create as many as 57 new jobs by the end of 2019, and the new Jeffersonville bottling facility is set to be complete by next spring, the company says.
