With 18 locations across the U.S., Niagara Bottling is now the second-largest bottled water manufacturer in the nation. 

The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) announced today that NIagara Bottling, LLC, the nation’s largest private label bottled water supplier, will establish a new facility in Coweta County.

The project, a $52 million investment, will create more than 40 new jobs in the Coweta area.

The company will be building a new 450,000 square foot facility in Shenandoah Park and the expected date of completion is set for late 2014. The facility will package and distribute private label water for its customers as well as the Niagara label. The facility will include one production line with a potential of up to four production lines in the future.

The project was a collaborative effort between the Coweta County Development Authority, GDEcD and Lee & Associates. GDEcD project manager Wylly Harrison assisted the project on behalf of Georgia.

“We are very excited to welcome Niagara Bottling to Coweta County and to the growing list of quality industries in our community,” said Terry Daviston, chairman of the Coweta County Development Authority. “During the location process, the company was very clear that they wanted to locate their new facility in an innovative and dynamic community, and we are very pleased that they found what they were looking for in Coweta County”.

“Niagara Bottling will be a great addition to Coweta County,” said Bob Blackburn, chairman of the Coweta County Commission. “This family-owned company has been in business for more than 50 years and is built on strong family values and a strong work ethic. We appreciate Niagara's investment in Coweta County, and we look forward to working with the company as it expands in the years to come.”
