AquaPenn(R) Opens New Florida Bottling Plant
The 52,400 square-foot facility includes computer-operated stainless steel bottling equipment, stainless steel product piping, an in-house microbiological laboratory for quality assurance, warehousing space, and multiple truck docks. Spring water is piped from nearby Ginnie Springs via a stainless steel pipeline. The plant was designed to facilitate future expansion.
The Florida plant was designed by AquaPenn staff members. Work was coordinated by Mr. Pete Lee, the Company's Project Manager. The general contractor was Joyner Construction Company, and civil engineering and site plans were submitted by Eng, Denman & Associates, Inc., both of Gainesville. The Plant Manager is Ms. Trina Coggins, who had been the Assistant Plant Manager at Milesburg.
