Alabama beverage company to build bottling plant in SC

By The Associated Press

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — An Alabama beverage company plans to invest $130 million and create more than 100 jobs in South Carolina's Spartanburg County.

Milo's Tea Company, headquartered in Bessemer, Alabama, will open a new brewing and bottling operation in Moore, South Carolina.

Spartanburg County Councilman David Britt announced the plan Monday during a County Council meeting. The facility would be the company's fourth plant in the U.S., The Herald-Journal reported.

“They are an outstanding family-owned business that was established in 1946 and their people-first attitude will fit incredibly well in our county,” said Britt, who chairs the county’s economic development committee.

Milo’s will build a 110,000-square-foot (10,200-square-meter) plant to accommodate brewing and bottling operations, Britt said.

Operations are expected to be online by the end of 2024, Gov. Henry McMaster said in a statement Tuesday.

“South Carolina’s strong economy continues to attract leading businesses such as Milo’s Tea Company,” McMaster said. “Their decision to invest in South Carolina will significantly strengthen our beverage industry, and the new jobs will greatly enhance the Spartanburg County community and the state as a whole.”

Milo's Tea Company's Chief Executive Officer Tricia Wallwork said Spartanburg County was chosen because it “was the optimal location to efficiently serve our customers up and down the East Coast.”

Milo's products include sweetened and unsweetened tea, lemonade, and peach, raspberry and lemon-flavored teas.
