In January 2014, we secured our location for our distribution center in Enka Center off Highway 19/23 in Enka-Candler, NC. It's about 8 miles from the brewery and Liquid Center site on Craven Street.
Since that announcement, product demand and construction efficiency are driving our decision to build the full 141,000 sq ft facility in one swoop rather than in two phases. We will distribute beer made at our Asheville brewery across the East coast from this location. Hiring will begin in early 2015. More below the photo.
Site preparation at our DC began late this spring 2014. Grading and pad preparation are in progress. The building process will run concurrent with the brewery building process, and we anticipate the DC will be completed around spring 2015. We will provide periodic site updates about the progress. We’re excited to become part of the business community in Enka/Candler.
