Nite Ize has secured one of the last available 160,000-square-foot warehouses in Boulder County to serve as the company’s new global distribution headquarters.
The new facility comes as the company has seen record growth in the last nine months. The additional square and cubic footage of the new facility, located in the Boulder Tech Center at 6303 West Dry Creek Parkway in Longmont, CO, offers additional storage space for increasing inventory needs and high-volume order processing equipment.
The company also selected Oracle as its enterprise technology partner to improve business processes.
“The challenges of growth are good to have,” Nite Ize President Michael Boyd said. “I am amazed at where this company is today. Tackling a massive consolidation and move of two facilities is one thing but doing it simultaneously with a transfer of critical business data to a new platform is another. Both were essential decisions for continued growth and our future success.”
Nite Ize was previously operating out of three locations in Boulder: a global office headquarters on Central Avenue in East Boulder, which will remain, as well as a manufacturing facility on Longbow Drive and a distribution center on Spine Road, both in North Boulder.
The new facility within the Boulder Tech Center replaces the Longbow Drive and Spine Road locations, allowing Nite Ize to consolidate and improve the efficiency of their operations with the help of features like 28-foot clear heights. The building also offers a front park/rear load design with 16 docks, two drive-in doors, a newly installed ESFR fire suppression system and trailer parking. It was originally built in 1991 and renovated in 2013. The nearly 11-acre site is located along the Diagonal Highway, about six miles from downtown Boulder, and was previously leased by Case Logic (a subsidiary of Sweden-based Thule Group) which relocated last fall.
“The opportunity to capture prime Boulder County space near our current headquarters sets us up for continued growth and keeps us rooted in the Boulder community,” Boyd said. “We are excited to have consolidated two of our three buildings and incorporated additional production, inventory and order processing space.”
