GOVERNOR HOGAN ANNOUNCES NIAGARA BOTTLING PLANS NEW OPERATIONS AT TRADEPOINT ATLANTIC
BALTIMORE, MD (April 11, 2022) — Governor Hogan today announced Niagara Bottling, LLC, one of the nation’s leading beverage manufacturers, is opening a new manufacturing facility at Tradepoint Atlantic in Baltimore County. Niagara Bottling plans to construct a 600,000 square-foot facility at the global logistics hub and anticipates moving into the facility by Spring 2023, and will add more than 90 new jobs at the project site in the coming years.
“We are pleased to welcome Niagara Bottling as it expands its presence along the East Coast,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “Not only are we adding a well-known business to the state, but also the potential for more than a hundred new jobs in Sparrows Point. We are excited to see what the future holds for the company as it sets up its operations in Maryland.”
With its plans to add new jobs in Maryland, the company has submitted a notice of intent to utilize the More Jobs for Marylanders program, as well as the state’s Job Creation Tax Credit. The More Jobs for Marylanders program incentivizes new and existing manufacturers to create new jobs in the state, and to non-manufacturers that locate or expand in Maryland Opportunity Zones.
“Niagara Bottling has established strong business and community relationships throughout our numerous plant locations and we look forward to continued growth and success at our new production facility in Baltimore County,” said Brian Hess, executive vice president at Niagara Bottling. “We’re excited to continue our strong legacy of manufacturing that creates jobs, builds partnerships, and makes a positive and lasting impact throughout Baltimore County.”
Formed in 1963, Niagara Bottling is a family-owned and operated business headquartered in Diamond Bar, California. With bottling facilities throughout the U.S. and Mexico, the company is known for its commitment to quality by using state-of-the-art technologies for purification, filtration, and disinfection. Niagara’s portfolio of products includes a variety of sparkling, flavored, and vitamin waters, as well as teas, ready-to-drink coffee, protein drinks, and non-dairy milk products, and can be found in some of the largest retailers, convenience and grocery stores across the country.
“We are happy to support Niagara’s new facility at Tradepoint Atlantic, where it will be in good company with several other distributors utilizing Maryland’s prime location to do business,” said Maryland Commerce Secretary Mike Gill. “With its combination of access to highways, rail lines, and the Port of Baltimore, this global logistics center has everything Niagara needs to expand in the Mid Atlantic and reach customers quickly and efficiently across the U.S.”
“We are proud to have Niagara Bottling join the many world class companies that have selected Tradepoint Atlantic to expand their business on the East Coast,” said Tradepoint Atlantic Managing Director Marc Salotti. “Niagara will be able to take full advantage of the infrastructure assets offered at Tradepoint, including our robust water supply, onsite water treatment capabilities, and Baltimore Gas and Electric’s new 100 MW substation.”
“We are excited that Niagara Bottling is expanding its footprint in Baltimore County,” said Baltimore County Department of Economic and Workforce Development Director Leonard Howie. “The addition of this great business to Tradepoint Atlantic will not only provide more job opportunities for our highly trained workforce, but also marks another step forward in Sparrows Point’s transformative redevelopment as a global hub for commerce.”
