New Ocean Spray Plant Taking Shape in Upper Macungie
Work continues on the complex, located at Boulder Drive off of Schantz Road in Upper Macungie.
Construction on the new Ocean Spray bottling plant, located on Boulder Drive, off of Schantz Road, continued this week despite the cold weather.
The plant is located on 44 acres of land along Boulder Drive and will sport a plant of 225,000 square feet.
The $110 million project, which has the backing of Gov. Tom Corbett's office, is expected to bring 165 jobs into the Lehigh Valley. Ocean Spray is moving its operations to the Lehigh Valley from Bordentown, N.J., which is near Trenton.
The Ocean Spray plant is located directly across from the Bimbo Bakeries USA project, a state-of-the-art bakery in Upper Macungie that will bring more than 100 jobs to the area and produce bread and buns for the Northeast.
