Niagara Bottling coming to Mooresville

Gov. Bev Perdue today announced that Niagara Bottling will open a new plant in Iredell County. The company plans to create 66 jobs and invest $45 million during the next three years in Mooresville.
The project was made possible in part by a $200,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund.
Niagara Bottling LLC, a family-owned, private-label, bottled water manufacturer, is headquartered in Ontario, Calif. Since 1963, the company has grown to operate nine plants around the country. The company provides high-quality, low-cost bottled water for grocery, club store, convenience and wholesale customers.
Niagara will open its 10th plant in Mooresville to serve the Mid-Atlantic region. The plant will be totally vertically-integrated; meaning it will produce both its own caps and bottles, as well as, fill and package bottles of purified and spring water.
Salaries will vary by job function, but the average annual wage for the new jobs will be $39,447 plus benefits. The Iredell County average annual wage is $36,348.
“Niagara is excited to announce Mooresville as its next home community,” said Brian Hess, EVP of Operations & Legal Affair. “With the excellent workforce and dynamic community spirit, we have no doubt that our facility will be world class.”
The One NC Fund provides financial assistance, through local governments, to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create new jobs in the state. Companies receive no money up front and must meet job creation and investment performance standards to qualify for grant funds. These grants also require and are contingent upon local matches.
Other partners that helped with this project include the N.C. Department of Commerce, N.C. Community Colleges, Duke Energy, the town of Mooresville, Mooresville-South Iredell Economic Development Corporation and Iredell County.
