Niagara to open bottling plant, create 70 jobs
The California-based Niagara Bottling Company has announced its plans to open a manufacturing plant that will bring about 70 jobs to the Florence area.
The new plant will be located just off Interstate 95 and is expected to open by the winter of 2021, according to a press release from Niagara. The 502,320 square-foot facility will be constructed at Pee Dee Touchstone Energy Commerce Park in Florence County.
The company said it is investing $70 million in the facility.
The company said in a statement Florence's location along I-95 along with the infrastructure in the business park where it will build the plant influenced the decision. “Niagara Bottling is very excited to establish our newest manufacturing facility in Florence,” said Executive Vice-president Brian Hess. “We chose Florence as our new home for a number of reasons including what we felt was a highly competitive and attractive combination of location, infrastructure and workforce.”
