Big Agnes and Honey Stinger will finally consolidate their offices under one roof in Steamboat Springs, CO.
For years, the sister companies have looked to consolidate several office spaces hroughout town to one larger space. Located within minutes of the Steamboat Ski Area, the Yampa River and trails, the new headquarters features two floors and an underground parking garage.
“Consolidating our operations into one space has long been a goal of ours,” said Bill Gamber (pictured above), Honey Stinger/Big Agnes co-founder and president. “We feel tremendously fortunate to have found a property in Steamboat Springs that not only accommodates our growing staff, but also gives us close access to local trails, the ski area and the Yampa River for our favorite activities like Nordic and downhill skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking and fly fishing.”
The new building will accommodate more than 60 employees from several departments, including accounting, product development, sales, marketing, customer service, dealer services and warranty. While Big Agnes and Honey Stinger remain separate business entities, the consolidation will be beneficial as some ownership and staff roles are shared between companies. Honey Stinger and Big Agnes anticipate minor remodeling, but they expect to move the first wave of employees into its new headquarters in early October 2016.
Named for a peak in the nearby Mt. Zirkel Wilderness, Big Agnes Inc. produces sleeping bags, pads, tents and insulated apparel and is the exclusive distributor of Helinox trekking poles and camp furniture in North and South America.
Honey Stinger makes honey-based foods including energy and snack bars, protein bars, organic energy gels, organic waffles, gluten free organic waffles, organic chews, and organic waffles and energy chews for kids.
