The Scottsdale, Arizona-based Alkaline Water Company Inc. has expanded its production capacities through its co-packing partner, AZ Custom Water, which completed a new packaging and bottling line for Alkaline Water Co. in 2021 and is further expanding its capabilities in 2022.
“Over the past two years, our strategic network of copackers has allowed us to produce and deliver when many of our competitors could not. Now, with the addition of AZ Custom Water and their production capabilities, we are further strengthening our position in the Southwest,” said Ricky Wright, president and CEO of the Alkaline Water Company.
“This year, AZ Custom Water will be an important producer of our entire portfolio of Alkaline water products, including being our West Coast supplier for our growing line of Alkaline88 FreshCap functional beverages. As we grow, we are finding the need for multiple bottlers in strategic markets. AZ Custom Water began to manufacture for us in 2021 and have already proven to be great partners. As they further increase production, we expect them to be a significant co-packing partner for years to come.”
AZ Custom Water expressed similar sentiments. “It’s great to work with together with Alkaline88 as they continue to grow their national footprint,” said Kathryn Gavin, president and CEO. “The production capacity AZ Custom Water provides will help their brand continue to deliver and meet fulfillment when other brands cannot. We’ll work together to stay ahead of demand as Alkaline88 continues to carve out more market share in the Southwest and other markets.”
Founded in 2012, The Alkaline Water Company’s flagship product, Alkaline88, is a leading alkaline water brand available in bulk and single-serve sizes along with eco-friendly aluminum packaging options. In 2021, The Alkaline Water Company welcomed Shaquille O’Neal to its board of advisors and to serve as the celebrity brand ambassador for Alkaline88.
