Firm Announces $15.5 Million Investment In Spring Water Manufacturing Facility
May 14, 2019

Flow Alkaline Spring Water, an Ontario-based provider of naturally alkaline spring water, has announced that the company will invest $15.5 million to establish its first U.S. spring water manufacturing facility in Augusta County, Virginia.

Headquartered in Ontario, Canada, Flow Alkaline Spring Water produces naturally alkaline spring water in sustainable, eco-friendly packaging. The company’s innovative product adheres to rigorous water quality assurance protocols while helping people hydrate mindfully.

“We are so grateful to have found such a unique source of naturally alkaline spring water in the beautiful state of Virginia, and to be able to further develop our mindful hydration business there,” said Nicholas Reichenbach, Founder and CEO of Flow Alkaline Spring Water. “As we have done at our original spring, located on the property I grew up on in rural Ontario, we will protect and respect this treasured resource, while investing in the community around it.”

According to a statement released by Governor Ralph S. Northam’s office, “Virginia is proud to serve as the home base for Flow Alkaline Spring Water as the company expands into the East Coast market,” noted Governor Northam in response to the announcement. “Flow’s decision to locate its first U.S. manufacturing operation in Augusta County is a powerful testament to the region’s competitive operating costs, strategic location and accessibility, and abundant natural resources. This significant investment will help drive economic activity in the Shenandoah Valley and we are confident that this environmentally conscious company will be a valuable corporate partner in this community and this Commonwealth for years to come.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Augusta County, the Shenandoah Valley Partnership, and the Virginia Port Authority to secure the project for Virginia. Governor Northam approved a $250,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Augusta County with the project. The company is eligible to receive Sales and Use tax exemptions on manufacturing equipment, as well as benefits from the Port of Virginia Economic and Infrastructure Development Zone Grant Program and the Virginia Port Tax Credits Program.
