Osprey Packs, Inc.. plans to expand its headquarters in Cortez, Colo., as the company also is completing its new distribution center in Ogden, Utah, which will open in mid-April with a staff of 23.
The expanded headquarters in Cortez, in Southwestern Colorado, will open the second half of this year. The company will add 14 new positions at headquarters this year, including increases to the sales, marketing, quality & returns and IT departments. Additionally, Mike Pfotenhauer and Diane Wren, the founders of Osprey Packs, recently relocated back to Cortez from California.
“This is an exciting time for Osprey,” said Tom Barney, the CEO of Osprey Packs. “We just concluded our 40th anniversary year where we enjoyed double-digit sales growth and started several important initiatives, including expanding to our new distribution facility in Ogden and a further commitment to Cortez as our world headquarters. 2015 will surely be a year of opportunity and growth for the brand. Opening a new distribution center allows us to better serve our customers but our primary home remains in Southwest Colorado around our Cortez main offices.”
