A planned $112 million Niagara Bottling facility will create 50 jobs in Opelika.
Gov. Kay Ivey announced today that the company plans to open its new facility in the Northeast Opelika Industrial Park along I-85.
“Niagara Bottling’s decision to locate its new production facility in Opelika is a testament to Alabama’s strong business climate and the many advantages we can offer companies looking to energize their growth plans,” Ivey said. “Niagara Bottling is making a significant investment to launch this operation, and we are happy that the company chose to do it in Sweet Home Alabama.”
Niagara, based in Diamond Bar, California, operates bottling facilities throughout the U.S. and Mexico.
“We value the highly competitive and attractive combination of location, infrastructure, logistics and workforce in Opelika,” said Brian Hess, an executive vice president at Niagara Bottling. “Niagara has built a strong team and community relationships throughout the United States and looks forward to maintaining our leadership in the areas of manufacturing, innovation, supply chain and overall environmental stewardship.”
