It's an exciting time here at Fire Cider HQ. After a long search, we can finally share the good news about our future home. Later in 2017 we'll be moving to a building that will house our entire company and process under one roof, and we get to stay in our beloved hometown of Pittsfield, MA!
Construction has already begun to renovate the space. We're updating the building to accommodate our warehouse and offices as well as our new, custom kitchen. The 20,000-square-foot facility will enable us to increase our production capacity and expand our distribution throughout the United States and Canada. Production at the new facility is scheduled to begin in Fall 2017, with a bottling line to be added in 2018.
We worked with Jan Perry Realty, Lee Bank, and 1Berkshire to purchase in Pittsfield’s East Street neighborhood, and we've secured the professional services of Springfield-based The Dennis Group for architectural and engineering design. This move wouldn't be possible without help from the Community Development Department and the Pittsfield Economic Revitalization Corp (PERC).
We'll be posting updates each month showing you our progress, and the fun, exciting things we have planned for our new home. Stay tuned!
