The Temple Economic Development Corporation announced Niagara Bottling will build a new $90 million bottling facility in the city.
Niagara Bottling is the nation's largest family owned and operated beverage supplier.
The new site will be on 50 acres in the Temple Industrial Park and create about 70 jobs.
"Niagara Bottling is committed to supporting our local community, our team members and our environment. We are very excited to establish one of our newest beverage manufacturing facilities in Temple, Texas," said Brian Hess, Executive Vice President of Niagara Bottling. "We chose Temple 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. We are very excited to add 70 new team members in Temple and look forward to maintaining leadership in the areas of innovation, supply chain efficiencies, and overall environmental stewardship."
Construction for the 450,000 square-foot facility will begin in March 2019 with operations expecting to start in the fourth quarter of this year.
