Niagara Bottling LLC will host a recruitment event on Oct. 8 to fill 70 positions at its new facility in Pleasant Prairie.
The Ontario, Calif.-based company is building a $56 million, 377,000-square-foot plant in the LakeView Corporate Park, 11031 88th Ave. in Pleasant Prairie, for packaging and distributing private label water and Niagara label water. The facility is expected to be operational in early 2015.
Niagara, which initially planned to have one production line at the facility, will now build two high-speed, automated production lines in the building and has allowed space to add additional lines in the future.
Niagara’s recruitment event will be held from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the SC Johnson iMET Center at Gateway Technical College in Sturtevant. Experienced production supervisors, production operators, injection operators, maintenance mechanics, shipping associates, dock coordinators, quality assurance associates and others with similar experience are encouraged to apply.
Applicants, who must be 18 or older and have a high school diploma or GED, should bring a resume and be prepared to sit for an interview.
Also at the event, held in cooperation with the Kenosha Area Business Alliance and the Kenosha County Job Center, Niagara will provide background for applicants about its culture and the new plant. There will be a pre-screening process, followed by interviews of qualified candidates. Those who successfully complete the interview, and pass drug and background checks, will be hired the same day.
When the new plant is completed, Niagara will have 19 U.S. facilities. It is the largest private label bottled water supplier in the U.S., catering to grocery, club and convenience stores and wholesale customers.
