CHESTERFIELD – Governor Terry McAuliffe announced today that Niagara Bottling LLC, a family-owned and operated bottled beverage supplier, will invest $95 million to establish a 557,000 square-foot, manufacturing and bottling operation at Meadowville Technology Park in Chesterfield County. The company utilizes state-of-the-art filtration to produce its Niagara brand and private label bottled water. Virginia successfully competed against Maryland for the project, which will create 76 new jobs.
“Recruiting companies such as Niagara Bottling is at the heart of our efforts to create jobs, diversify and build a new Virginia economy,” said Governor McAuliffe. “Niagara is a leading bottled water supplier in the United States and has been family owned and operated since 1963. We are pleased Niagara chose Chesterfield County for this significant expansion, and are confident the company will thrive in the Commonwealth, thanks to our strategic location and motivated workforce.”
“I welcome Niagara Bottling to the Commonwealth. Chesterfield will be a strategic location for its new manufacturing and bottling center,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones. “I am pleased we were able to assist the company in their east coast expansion and efforts to reach a growing customer base. The Commonwealth offers the best overall business environment for a company to grow, and I am confident Niagara Bottling will benefit from our world-class assets. Congratulations to Niagara Bottling and Chesterfield County!”
Choate Construction, who has partnered with Niagara on their last seven facilities, will be constructing the new facility.
