Liquidlogic and Legacy Paddlesports plan to merge, following the recent decision to manufacture Liquidlogic kayaks at the Legacy Paddlesports plant in Greensboro, NC. The move was signaled by the signing of a Letter of Intent. Liquidlogic owners will become part owners of Legacy Paddlesports, joining both Andy Zimmerman and co-founder Hol Whitney, who is also the founder of Heritage Kayaks.
“This is a win-win situation,” notes Andy Zimmerman, Legacy Paddlesports President and CEO. “We have been friendly competitors for many years. I dont know of any other paddlesports companies with more experienced and passionate people in the world than those at Liquidlogic and Legacy Paddlesports, and we are looking forward to the partnership.”
“We are all truly excited about this situation,” notes Woody Callaway, Liquidlogic Brand Manager. “Andy Zimmerman and I have been close friends for thirty years, and theres no better person to be in the lead. Our heart and soul will continue to thrive with R&D and Customer Service remaining in the North Carolina mountains near the Green River. The Legacy team in Greensboro with their decades of experience will get us to the marketplace smoothly.” Steve Jordan, VP of Sales notes, “Our combined resources and talents will benefit our dealers and our industry. The future is incredibly bright.”
