City Brewery, the nation’s largest full-service alcoholic beverage contract manufacturer, is expanding its operations in the region with the lease of new property in the RIDC Westmoreland Innovation Center. The Regional Industrial Development Corp. of Southwestern Pennsylvania made the announcement on Monday. The nonprofit development company said City Brewery has signed a five-year lease for a 255,584-square-foot space in its 2.8 million-square-foot New Stanton facility. The space will be used by City Brewery for warehousing and distribution operations and will employ 50 to 60 people.
City Brewery currently operates a brewhouse in Latrobe, and the company’s controller, Zack Mazzoni, said the close proximity to its Latrobe site was a factor in the new leasing agreement.
“We liked that the space is close to our facilities in Latrobe,” Mazzoni said in a release. “It’s a large space with a landlord that has a track record for being flexible and accommodating.”
City Brewery also operates facilities in La Crosse, Wisconsin (where it is based); Memphis, Tennessee; and Irwindale, California; and it employs over 1,800 people. The RIDC Westmoreland Innovation Center is home to several prominent tenants, including Argo AI, Intervala and Siemens Corp.
“Our continuing partnership with Westmoreland County Industrial Development Corp. has been invaluable in bringing back businesses and jobs to this site and cultivating it into an advanced manufacturing hub,” Timothy White, RIDC’s senior vice president of development, said in a release.
