Milo’s Tea Company, a 76-year-old Alabama-based national beverage company, today announced it will invest over $130 million initially to build a new manufacturing and distribution facility in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. In the beginning, this new facility will bring more than 100 jobs to the area. Milo’s expects to break ground by mid-March 2023 and start production of its tea and lemonade in fall 2024.
After a multi-year site selection process, the company chose the 48-acre campus at the corner of U.S. Highway 290 and U.S. Highway 221 in Moore, South Carolina. The 110,000 square-foot facility will be the fourth production plant for the company. Milo’s other manufacturing facilities are located in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area and Bessemer and Homewood, Alabama.
“South Carolina was the optimal location to efficiently serve our customers up and down the east coast,” said CEO Tricia Wallwork. “Like our selection journey for our Oklahoma facility, 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.”
