Pierce County officials announced Wednesday Niagara Bottling plans to open a state-of-the-art, 311,000-square-foot facility in Randles Business Park in the Frederickson Industrial Area. This will be Niagara’s first site in the Pacific Northwest, joining 13 others around the country. The new facility will create 36 jobs and the company plans to make a capital investment of approximately $50 million. The facility will serve the company’s customers throughout the region. Groundbreaking is expected this fall and the company is scheduled to be fully operational early next year.
“We are very excited about our expansion in Washington State,” said Brian Hess, Niagara’s Executive Vice President of Legal Affairs. “We’re looking forward to servicing the needs of our customers in the region, and to being a good corporate neighbor. We can’t wait to get started.”
“Niagara Bottling is a great addition to the local business community,” said Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy, who visited the company’s California headquarters to discuss the merits of locating in Frederickson. “Niagara is a national leader in the industry, and building a plant in Pierce County provides great access to the Northwest market. Niagara joins companies like Amazon, State Farm and others who have recently announced decisions to expand in Pierce County because it’s a great place to work, live and play.”
