Owoc said: “Bang Energy expects to invest well over $260,000,000 in Phoenix, Arizona. Bang Energy is excited to operate in a city and state that laid out the red carpet for us and who values our brilliant partnership. Phoenix is also home to Hensley Beverage Company who is our #1 US distributor.

“We are thrilled to align ourselves with Andy McCain and the highly-valued Hensley staff. Furthermore, Phoenix’s Mayor and City Council, the Arizona Commerce Authority, and others, too numerous to mention, have been overly generous and helpful.

The Phoenix facility is expected to create more than 300 jobs in the region.

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said: “Manufacturing jobs have been growing rapidly in Phoenix. Among the reasons are Phoenix’s concentration and diversity of food manufacturers.

“These next-generation manufacturing companies bring opportunities in technology, engineering, and manufacturing. This combination represents the kind of stable, advanced industry jobs that are highly desirable to Phoenicians.

“Our city’s business environment and quality workforce are the reasons Phoenix and the Valley are creating more new jobs than any other metro in the US.”
