In response to the damaging aftermath of Hurricane Sandy across New Jersey and the massive destruction of the offices and warehouse of Kearny, NJ-based Fedway Associates, Inc., the exclusive New Jersey distributor for Grey Goose Vodka, Derek Hopkins, Senior Vice President and Head of Sales for Bacardi U.S.A., announced a multi-faceted effort in support of its New Jersey distributor partner and its retail and on-premise customers.
“Bacardi wants to extend its deepest concerns to everyone at Fedway and our retail and on-premise customers,” Hopkins said. “We are showing our loyalty to our partner in this critical time of need by standing beside them and working together to overcome the situation. As a token of our support, we will be making a contribution, including an employee matching program, to the American Red Cross, who is actively working on the ground to assist all those affected by the storm.”
In reaffirming its long-standing commitment to Fedway Associates, Bacardi U.S.A. will make a donation to the New Jersey Chapter of the Red Cross for each bottle of GREY GOOSE Vodka sold at retail through January 1, 2013.
“Extraordinary efforts are underway to resume normal operations in the coming days and weeks,” said Sean Feeley, Region Director of the Coastal Division, Bacardi U.S.A. Adds Neil Barnett, President of Fedway Associates, Inc., “We are making rapid and significant progress and we intend to begin shipping next week. We hope to be in full operation by the first week of December.”
