Ready-to-drink tea and lemonade manufacturer Milo’s Tea Company broke ground on a new, $60 million manufacturing and distribution center in Tulsa, OK, the Birmingham, AL-based firm announced in a release Monday. 

“From our initial visit, Tulsa felt like our second home,” the company’s chief executive officer, Patricia Wallwork, said in a statement. “Since our founding more than 73 years ago in Alabama, Milo’s proudly remains a family-owned business. We are equally proud to plant new roots in the greater Tulsa region.”

The 108,000-sq-ft facility is slated to become operational in September 2020. 110 direct jobs will be created by the opening of the plant.

Milo’s expanded its distribution from 13 to 35 states in 2014, according to the company. As of this year, the firm served 45 states. 

“It became critical to construct a second production facility to continue our exponential growth,” said Wallwork. “Tulsa’s family-centric culture, innovative workforce, and optimal location for the mass distribution of goods is fundamental in the expansion of our geographic footprint.”
