US-based bottled beverage supplier Niagara Bottling is planning to establish a manufacturing and bottling operation facility at Meadowville Technology Park in Chesterfield County, Virginia, with an investment of $95m.

The facility will use an advanced filtration process to produce its Niagara brand and private label bottled water.   

The new facility, which received a $500,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund, will create 76 jobs.

"Recruiting companies such as Niagara Bottling is at the heart of our efforts to create jobs, diversify and build a new Virginia economy."

Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe said: “Recruiting companies such as Niagara Bottling is at the heart of our efforts to create jobs, diversify and build a new Virginia economy.

“We are pleased Niagara chose Chesterfield County for this significant expansion, and are confident the company will thrive in the Commonwealth, thanks to our strategic location and motivated workforce.”

Niagara will receive sales and use tax exemptions on manufacturing equipment to be installed at the new facility.
