Virginia Artesian Bottling Expands Mechanicsville, Virginia, Operations
The investment will include warehouse space and an additional blow mold line.
“Enhancing our operations in Virginia was an easy decision,” said Steve Brown, co-owner of Virginia Artesian Bottling Company. “The strong work ethic of our team members and support of fellow business community makes growing the business enjoyable.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Hanover County to secure the project and will support Virginia Artesian Bottling Company’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities.
As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies. VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for citizens.
“Food and beverage processing is Virginia’s second-largest manufacturing sector, and our success in this booming industry is evidenced by the companies that continue to invest in the Commonwealth,” noted Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “Virginia Artesian Bottling Company has thrived since its beginnings in Hanover County more than two decades ago, and I am thrilled to see this expansion take a family business into its next era of growth and innovation.”
Virginia Artesian Bottling Company is a family-owned-and-operated company that sits on two deep, stone-protected aquifers in Hanover County, enabling it to bottle right at the source and retain its purity and clean, crisp taste. The company bottles water for various entities from universities to hotels across the nation.
