Montana Fly Company owner announces sale of business
Montana Fly Company founder Adam Trina has announced the sale of his company to Justin Nine – the owner of the Golden Fly Shop in Golden, Colorado, home of the famous ‘Streamer Wall’.
Trina (pictured above left with Nine) said he was adamant about not letting his company go into the hands of a big corporation that would likely dilute or dissolve the brand. “When Justin approached me with a long-term vision, continued creativity, product expansion and keeping MFC independently held, he had my attention,” added Trina. “We believe he is the perfect addition to our already powerhouse team.”
Trina will stay on at Montana Fly Company as President and there are no immediate plans to relocate the company headquarters and distribution centre from Columbia Falls, Montana. “It will be exciting for MFC fans to see what we unveil in the coming years as we work with Justin on a wide range of products and innovations,” he added.
In 22 years, Trina has grown MFC to 500 employees worldwide with distributors in every fly fishing country. “I’ve put my heart and soul into making this company a powerhouse, and I’m excited to see how far its come and now its exciting future under Justin’s ownership.”
