Ocean Spray has made a big decision: It's coming to the Lehigh Valley.

The juice drink maker said it's moving its bottling and processing operations from a plant in Bordentown, New Jersey.

It will build a new facility somewhere in the Lehigh Valley. The location hasn't been finalized.

Ocean Spray expects the move to be completed by 2013.

Ocean Spray decided against upgrading its Bordentown plant, the oldest and costliest facility in its manufacturing network.
