Niagara Bottling, one of the nation’s leading beverage manufacturers, plans to establish operations at Tradepoint Atlantic in Baltimore County, Maryland. The project is expected to create 90 jobs over the coming years.
The company will construct a 600,000 square-foot manufacturing facility and anticipates moving in by Spring 2023.
“Niagara Bottling has established strong business and community relationships throughout our numerous plant locations and we look forward to continued growth and success at our new production facility in Baltimore County,” said Brian Hess, executive vice president at Niagara Bottling. “We’re excited to continue our strong legacy of manufacturing that creates jobs, builds partnerships, and makes a positive and lasting impact throughout Baltimore County.”
The company has submitted a notice of intent to utilize the More Jobs for Marylanders program, as well as the state’s Job Creation Tax Credit, according to state officials. The More Jobs for Marylanders program incentivizes new and existing manufacturers to create new jobs in the state, and to non-manufacturers that locate or expand in Maryland Opportunity Zones.
“We are happy to support Niagara’s new facility at Tradepoint Atlantic, where it will be in good company with several other distributors utilizing Maryland’s prime location to do business,” said Maryland Commerce Secretary Mike Gill. “With its combination of access to highways, rail lines, and the Port of Baltimore, this global logistics center has everything Niagara needs to expand in the Mid Atlantic and reach customers quickly and efficiently across the U.S.”
