Milo’s Tea Company has announced plans to invest an initial $130 million to build a new manufacturing and distribution facility in Spartanburg County, South Carolina.
According to the US-based company, the new facility was chosen after a “multi-year site selection process” and will bring more than 100 jobs to the area.
The 110,000-square-foot facility will be Milo’s fourth production plant and it expects to break-ground by mid-March 2023, starting production of its tea and lemonade in late 2024.
CEO at Milo’s Tea Company, Tricia Wallwork, said: “South Carolina was the optimal location to efficiently serve our customers up and down the east coast… We immediately felt at home in the Spartanburg area as we received a warm welcome from state and local community partners. South Carolina and Spartanburg County in particular proved to be the right ecosystem to help us advance our people-first culture by offering an excellent standard of living for our associates and robust workforce development resources to drive economic prosperity not only for our people but also for the region.”
The expansion into South Carolina supports Milo’s goal of expanding its production of teas and beverages. The company plans to add additional lines of production over the coming years.
