Black Bear to expand bottling operation in Oak Creek

Nov. 20, 2013

Oak Creek — Black Bear Bottling Group will expand its Oak Creek bottling plant, 2025 W. South Branch Blvd., by 18,839 square feet, adding loading docks and office space.

The company got approval to expand from the Plan Commission on Nov. 12. Black Bear plans to add three to five employees, according to information submitted to the city.

The addition will be used primarily for storage of drinking water and soda. Two loading docks will be added as well.

Black Bear bottling pushed for, and was granted, landscaping permission due to a lack of shrubs.

The company purchased the building from the city in 2012, after operating there on a lease for many years.
