It could be said Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) was amped up to meet Red Bull CEO, Stefan Koza. She discussed the energy drink giant’s first U.S. manufacturing and distribution plant, set to open in Glendale in 2021.
“Selecting Glendale as the home of Red Bull’s first U.S. facility makes perfect business sense. Arizona is home to one of the most productive, innovative workforces in the country. I’ll keep working to bring jobs to Arizona so we can keep growing our economy,” said Sinema.
The new facility, operating in conjunction with Ball Corporation and Rauch Fruit Juices, is expected to bring 300 to 500 jobs to the West Valley. The 700,000 square foot facility will be located at Reems Road and Peoria Avenue.
The new plant will be responsible for all distribution to the western United States.
According to its website, Red Bull sold 6.7 billion cans of its energy drink in 2018.
