Avalanche safety equipment company Ortovox USA has opened a new western U.S. sales and distribution center in West Valley, UT to support its growth. The Ortovoxs West Valley facility, located in a suburb of Salt Lake City, will handle all shipping and receiving for U.S. accounts while serving as the sales center for the companys new rep force. It's located at the foot of the Wasatch Range, as well as near a major transportation hub.
“New England has served us well as our headquarters and distribution center ever since we incorporated Ortovox USA nearly 14 years ago,” said CEO Marcus Peterson. “However, our growth and overall sales volume are now at a level that we thought the time to be right to move certain operations out West, closer to where the bulk of our products are being sold and used.”
Corporate administrative operations, professional contact, and warranty service will continue to be handled through the headquarters in Hopkinton, MA.
