TEMPLE, TX — Niagara Bottling set to build a $90 million bottling facility in the Temple industrial park. The project will soon forge ahead, as they prepare to break ground.

The company is constructing a 450,000 square foot plant on a 50-acre site. The bottling facility is expected to create 70 new jobs. Construction is broken down into two phases. The first phase will offer 49 new jobs.

“That’s significant for our community because that will bring another advanced manufacturing and processing facility, food grade type facility, in our community, and create a lot of good paying jobs for our citizenry,” said Adrian Cannady, Temple Economic Development Corporation.

Niagara Bottling is the country’s largest family owned and operated company. They plan on beginning operations in the fourth quarter of this year.
