Brewery supplier relocating to Fletcher

A Hickory-based brewery supplier plans to move its Southeastern headquarters to Fletcher.


The Country Malt Group will move to the Cane Creek Industrial Park and plans to open business there by September.

"Our brewery customers in North Carolina and the surrounding states have experienced tremendous growth over the last three years since we set up our Hickory distribution warehouse," stated Patrick La Zelle, Country Malt Group Eastern Territory Manager, "and we are pleased to be able to grow with them."

"We are very appreciative of the high level of service and commitment that our distribution partner Consolidation Services has provided us in Hickory" La Zelle stated. "Our decision to move to Fletcher was solely based on our desire to manage our own warehouse and to add milling capabilities for our customers that don't have the means to mill their own malt."

The Country Malt Group's Steve Magee will be relocating along with his family in the coming weeks in preparation for the warehouse move to Fletcher. Magee is currently based out of the Champlain, N.Y., warehouse where he has served as the on-site warehouse lead for the last two years.

Country Malt Group-Fletcher will be located at 145 Cane Creek Industrial Road with an anticipated opening date for business of Sept. 1. The Country Malt Group is a North American based distribution company committed to bringing brewery and distillery customers a wide product range, high level of customer service and competitive pricing.
