(Flat Rock and Greensboro, North Carolina) – Liquidlogic and Legacy Paddlesports have merged, after months of thoughtful discussion among the owners and their retailers and are now headquartered at the Legacy Paddlesports plant in Greensboro, NC.

“140 people are trained and hard at work producing and shipping boats and accessories,” notes Andy Zimmerman, Legacy Paddlesports President and CEO. “We are certainly not doing everything perfectly, but we believe we're doing a pretty darn good job. Importantly, we're supporting all orders with a great sales and customer service team.”

“The shift has been incredibly energizing,” notes Woody Callaway, Liquidlogic Brand Manager. “We're catching up, and are now able to fill and ship orders confidently. In addition, we have access to additional resources, from planning and production to marketing. The meshing of our design teams requires work, for sure… but we are having fun like we have not experienced in a while, and our dealers and consumers are going to benefit from our renewed enthusiasm.
Liquidlogic R&D and Customer Service remain in Flat Rock, and we are more excited than ever about the future.”
