Wimmers boss says he’s going to water

COOROY businessman Peter Lavin still has his sights set on Cooroy Mountain Spring Water.

The millionaire who purchased the Wimmers side of the business last year, confirmed he would be putting in an offer for the other part of the business.

The property went on the market about two weeks ago.

"We got the documents the other day," Mr Lavin said.

He attempted to purchase the whole company last year.

"We had both under contract, and receivers and ANZ couldn't deliver the title to the land," he said.

"It's taken about 12 months to sort that out."

Mr Lavin said his desire was to get the business up and running again.

"We'd have to crank it up again start from scratch, like we did with Wimmers."

Cooroy Mountain Spring Waters started in 1991 but went into receivership in 2011.

"Wimmers and Cooroy Mountain Spring employed more than 50 people before. It can get back to that," Mr Lavin said.

According to the sale sign out front of the property, the land area is approximately 48.17ha, zoned rurally, and includes manager's residence, bottling plant and equipment, and warehouse.
