On Wednesday, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey touted $250 million of new investment to the state from beverage company White Claw. This marks the latest investment from a Canadian company.

Canada is the largest foreign investor in Arizona. That investment continues to grow with the new White Claw facility. While White Claw Hard Seltzer is owned by Mark Anthony Brands out of Chicago, and that company is largely owned by one Canadian investor.

White Claw along with 350 Arizona-based businesses including all the state's Circle K's are Canadian, according to Glenn Williamson, CEO of the Canada-Arizona Business Council.

"I happen to be involved in a company called EPCOR, the Edmonton Power Company, and we're the largest private water utility in the state of Arizona and we are Canadian as well.

When complete in June, the White Claw facility in Glendale is expected to employ 200 people.
