NEWBERRY - Pike Distributors, a family-owned beverage distributor, is relocating its headquarters to Marquette while still preserving operations and staff at its longtime Newberry facility. The Newberry facility will continue to be a fully operational warehouse and an important facility for operations.
Pike expects to fully open its new headquarters in Marquette during the first week of May. The 35,000-plus-square-foot facility is located at 353 U.S. 41 East, and is an upgrade and expansion of an existing warehouse. Meanwhile, Pike's 17,454-square-foot warehouse in Newberry will continue operations and serve its 66 retail accounts. Altogether, Pike employs more than 40 full-time employees at its three locations: Marquette, Newberry and Gladstone, with 13 employees at the new Marquette facility and 9 employees at Newberry, including three semi-divers.
