Water bottle company moves production to Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The CEO of a bottled water business has bought a multimillion-dollar machine to produce the company's entire inventory in Oklahoma.

The Journal Record reports (http://bit.ly/1k8YoBe ) Ozarka Water CEO Steve Raupe has bought the 5,000-square-foot production line to fill, cap, label and package water bottles. It can produce 360 bottles per minute. The addition means Ozarka's entire stock will be bottled in-house.

Ozarka Water had previously outsourced some of its production to another company. The new equipment in Oklahoma will create four employee positions, bringing the company's total worker count to 100.

Raupe says the production line will help the company save money, but didn't disclose exact figures.

Ozarka Water also distributes Mountain Valley Spring, which is sourced in Arkansas, and Eureka Spring Water, which is sourced in Oklahoma.
