KENTLAND, Ind. (AP) — A Canadian company plans to open a water bottling plant in northwestern Indiana.
Ice River Springs says it will build a 273,000-square-foot plant and hire about 100 people in Kentland, about 40 miles northwest of Lafayette.
The company will manufacture plastic bottles at the plant and fill them with water from a nearby spring. The $20 million facility is scheduled to open next spring.
Founded in 1995, Ice River Springs is Canada's largest privately owned water bottling company. It supplies private label bottled water to major North American retailers.
The company has operations in North Carolina and recently announced plans to build a plant in New Hampshire.
