Proximity Malt is a different kind of malt company, chiefly, we commit to providing our customers with quality service and reliability. Proximity will establish, maintain, and sustain access to local grains for quality malt processing.

Proximity shortens supply chains from those existing today. In order to provide our customers a consistent, regional, supply of specialty malts and roasted grains.
Monte Vista, Colorado, has been traditionally growing barley for more than 50 years. We are re-purposing a manufacturing facility in the San Luis Valley into a modern, regional, malthouse. In order to take advantage of the rich barley history and offer locally grown and malted grains to the growing brewing market in the Southwest.
Delaware, and its neighboring states, particularly Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, are known for their consistent barley production. The Mid-Atlantic region is the largest winter barley-growing region in North America. In the midst of this region will be the second plant, located in Laurel, Delaware.
Each site will have its own lab, in addition to a lab at our Collaboration Center in Milwaukee WI, where we have pilot malting and roasting capability to mimic our full scale plants. This allows us ultimately, to effectively collaborate with and better serve our customers.
