» About Cascadia Importers

Cascadia Importers was formed in July of 1997 by Tom Heffernan and Mark Henry. Coopers homebrewing products have long been favorites of Tom and Mark. When the opportunity arose to combine their love of beermaking with importing and promoting their favorite homebrewing products, they did not hesitate. According to Mark, “I’ve always believed that the Coopers Brewery produces some of the finest beers, and certainly the finest malt concentrates in the world. When I started homebrewing in 1985, I never thought I would someday be helpful in bringing these products to North American hobbyists!”

Tom Heffernan is a financial manager and experienced homebrewing products importer. For three years he worked as the controller and salesperson for an import company. He was responsible for initiating many of the programs which developed business in North America. Before working in the homebrewing industry, Tom worked for Ernst & Young, LLP and was an owner of a software development company. He has also worked for Microsoft. He is an avid homebrewer who knows what the consumer wants, and how to get it to him. Tom is Cascadia Importers’ Accountant and Business Manager. He is responsible for conducting Cascadia Importers’ daily operations.

"Cascadia Importers is known North America wide for their innovative, successful introductions of new product lines."
