Ice River Springs, a water bottler headquartered in Ontario, Canada, will build a $20 million, 273,000-square-foot plant in Kentland, according to the Indiana Economic Development Corp.
The project in the town between Gary and Lafayette will employ as many as 100 to bottle purified water as well as water taken from a spring. The plant will supply the Chicago area.
Ice River Springs operates U.S. sites in Morgan, N.C., and Claremont, N.H., and plans to add facilities in Florida, Texas and Tennessee.
Ice River received up to $493,000 in state incentives.
