BANG ENERGY Plans Southeast U.S. Manufacturing Campus in Lithia Springs, Georgia

09/22/2020
Energy and sports beverage company BANG ENERGY will invest $145 million to open its first Southeastern manufacturing and distribution facility in Lithia Springs, Georgia. The project is expected to create 600 new jobs in Douglas County.

Once fully operational, the more than 644,000-square-foot facility, located at 7705 Staples Drive, will have the capacity to produce more than 4,000 cans per day.

“Bang Energy is making a significant investment in Douglas County. Bang Energy is excited to operate in a county and a state that laid out the red carpet for us and who value our brilliant partnership. We’d like to offer special thanks to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp for his personal attention, together with the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Development Authority of Douglas County, and others too numerous to mention that have been phenomenally helpful,” said CEO and Chief Scientific Officer of Bang Energy Jack Owoc.

“Bang Energy is yet another American success story of entrepreneurship and risk-taking,” said Governor Brian P. Kemp. “The company’s decision to establish its very first Southeastern manufacturing and distribution facility in Lithia Springs is a testament to the state’s unmatched logistics network and highly skilled workforce. I’m confident the state’s pro-business environment will support Bang Energy’s growth as the company continues to create new jobs and opportunities for hardworking Georgians.”

Headquartered in Weston, Florida, Bang Energy is a leading manufacturer and seller of energy drinks and beverages, dietary supplements, and sports nutrition products. “Congratulations to Bang Energy on their selection of Douglas County as the home of their new manufacturing facility,” said Katie Kirkpatrick, president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “With metro Atlanta’s reputation as a manufacturing and distribution leader, we look forward to supporting Bang Energy as they ramp up their operations and continue to grow into the future.”

“We have worked with our partners in Douglas County and at the Metro Atlanta Chamber for some time to find the right user for this building, and we are thrilled to welcome Bang Energy’s operations to Georgia with this sizable, job-creating investment in the state,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “With customers across all 50 states and 80% of the U.S. market within a two-hour flight or two-day truck drive from Georgia, Bang Energy has found an excellent manufacturing and distribution location in Douglas County.”
