An all-hands-on-deck approach by Macomb County and its regional partners helped land a new, $120 million project in Shelby Township that will bring with it 60 highly skilled full-time jobs.
After an extensive search process, Niagara Bottling, based in Diamond Bar, Calif., chose Shelby Township to build a new facility and expand its operations into the Midwest. The 500,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art bottled water facility is being built on 23 Mile Road, west of Hayes.
The Macomb County Planning and Economic Development Department found out through the Detroit Regional Partnership in spring 2021 that the company was searching for an expansion site and offered six sites through its prime properties database.
While a site was considered, Macomb worked with the Michigan Economic Development Center (MEDC), to apply for an incentive known as the business development program. The program incentivizes companies who are looking at sites outside of the state to invest in Michigan. Niagara was offered an incentive package worth up to $785,866 to invest in Michigan.
In addition, workforce development partner Michigan Works offered an incentives package to assist in recruiting new staff. Moreover, Macomb Community College provided incentives that could assist Niagara Bottling with training its new staff.
Niagara Bottling broke ground in July 2022 and is expected to open in February 2023.
