Our commitment to our Community and Environment
In any industry, it’s important to stay on the cutting edge of emerging markets and technologies. At The Lewis Bear Company, we are always looking for opportunities to grow and improve.
In Pensacola, we opened our new warehouse in 2004, just ten days before Hurricane Ivan devastated our community. In 2011 we expanded our operations, adding 27,245 sq. ft. of CEW space and 7,050 sq. ft. of refrigerated space. We also have plans to expand our draft cooler space.
In Ebro, we consolidated two older operations and opened a new warehouse in 2008. In 2013 we expanded both CEW and draft cooler space.
We also converted to LED lighting throughout both facilities, resulting in annual savings of $60,000-$70,000 on our power bills.
“Lewis Bear is the best distributor in the area. They’re there for me. They don’t ignore the small guys. I’m a small guy in a big market. I’m not a corporate entity; I’m just a neighborhood bar, and they actually care about my neighborhood bar.”
