Nestle is eyeing Centre County to build a $50 million manufacturing facility for Nestle Waters’ Deer Park brand of water, according to a Centre Daily Times report.
Nestle Waters Natural Resources Manager Eric Andreus told the Centre Daily Times that Centre County is the frontrunner for the facility and several properties have been identified as potential sites for a facility in Spring and Benner townships, and that the company could make a decision in the next year.
Chamber of Business and Industry of Centre County President and CEO Vern Squier and Andreus told the Centre Daily Times that the facility would inject $55 million annually into the economy and support 50 full-time jobs in addition to about 100 jobs created through construction.
Nestle hopes to have a factory built by 2020, the report said.
Nestle Waters was founded in 1992, and is a division of the Nestle Group. The company has 49 brands including Nestle Pure Life, Perrier, Poland and Deer Park.
