Liquidlogic and Legacy Paddlesports have announced plans to merge, signaled by a signed Letter of Intent. This move follows the recent decision to manufacture Liquidlogic kayaks at the Legacy Paddlesports plant in Greensboro, NC.
This is a win-win situation,â€ notes Andy Zimmerman, Legacy Paddlesports President and CEO. â€œWe have been friendly competitors for many years. I don’t 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.â€
â€œWe are all truly excited about this situation,â€ notes Woody Callaway, Liquidlogic Brand Manager. â€œAndy Zimmerman and I have been close friends for thirty years, and there’s 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.â€ Steve Jordan, VP of Sales notes, â€œOur combined resources and talents will benefit our dealers and our industry. The future is incredibly bright.â€
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.
