Local Company Officially Opens Doors to the Public

Posted: Updated:

UNION GAP, WA-- If you have ever wanted to see how Liberty Bottle Works makes their popular water bottles, now you can.

The Yakima Valley company has opened an eco-friendly storefront in Union Gap where you can shop for the company's metal water bottles, and also check out the factory where they are made.

The CEO of liberty bottle works said they wanted to become more accessible to their customers, and it didn't take long for them to open up the new building.

"We've had more and more guests coming in from Seattle and different people around town to see where the bottles were made and they wanted to be able and pick up water bottles, and so we decided about six weeks ago to put together a store-front and between then and now it came together," said CEO Tim Andis.

The new storefront is made from sustainable and recycled materials including wood salvaged from Track 29.

All the company's products are made in the Yakima valley.
