Company Overview

Established in 1996, the Nirvana, Inc. and Affiliates are privately owned and operated, manufacturer and bottler of spring water captured from four licensed springs on over 1,600 acres of real property located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains at Forestport, New York. The four licensed springs produce approximately 605,000 gallons of water each day. The spring water comes to the surface by its own natural force at 42 degrees F, year round and is collected and bottled on site. There is a 5th spring that has been setup and built out but is not yet operating as it has not been licensed.  A recent $10 million capital expansion increased capacity to 2 million cases of small PET (8 oz to 1.5 Liter) per month and there is an additional line dedicated to 3-Liter/1-Gallon bottle production with additional monthly capacity of at least 400,000 cases.

Debtors’ sales peaked in 2012 at $28.5 million, declining to a projected $20 million in 2015. At full capacity the facility is projected to generate an EBITDA of $10 million.  The Debtors currently employ 50 to 100 local residents depending on production, plus 5 sales representatives in the downstate NY/NJ area. All employees of the Company are non-union.
