Osprey Packs, a manufacturer of high-performance outdoor and travel packs, said Monday it has chosen Ogden as the location for its U.S. distribution center.
Osprey’s company headquarters, which includes sales, customer service, marketing, finance, returns and other core functions, will remain in Cortez, Colorado, but warehousing and shipping will occupy a new 108,000-square foot warehouse being built for Osprey at Business Depot Ogden. Completion of the building along with retailer shipments from this new location is expected by mid–2015.
The distribution center location was chosen for close access to rail and truck shipping corridors suited for the company’s retail base. This move also addresses the space constraints Osprey has faced in recent years requiring the company to patch together several smaller facilities in Cortez.
