Niagara Bottling To Locate Manufacturing-Bottling Hub In Chesterfield County, Virginia

Niagara Bottling LLC, a family-owned and operated bottled beverage supplier, will invest $95 million to establish a manufacturing and bottling operation at Meadowville Technology Park in Chesterfield County, Virginia.

The company will utilize state-of-the-art filtration to produce its Niagara brand and private label bottled water, with plans to create 76 new jobs.

“Niagara Bottling, LLC is committed to providing a high-quality product with unmatched quality service to its customers,” said Brian Hess, Executive Vice President of Operation for Niagara. “The Chesterfield, Virginia location allows the company to fulfill that commitment by providing an optimal location that is close to both its existing and growing customer market.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Chesterfield County and the Greater Richmond Partnership to secure this project for Virginia. Governor McAuliffe approved a $500,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Chesterfield County with the project. Niagara will also be eligible to receive sales and use tax exemptions on manufacturing equipment. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will also be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.

“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 Terry McAuliffe. “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!"

Steve Elswick, Chairman of the Chesterfield Board of Supervisors said, “Niagara falls within two of the county’s target clusters, food and beverage and advanced manufacturing. Niagara’s manufacturing and filling facility will be the most efficient and sustainable in the world. The 76 manufacturing jobs are just the type of employment opportunities we want for our Chesterfield residents.
