Pearl Izumi Building New Colorado Headquarters

by Brian Mullin on November 20, 2012

Grams Comments => My friends over at Pearl Izumi broke ground on
their new headquarters, which is pretty much across the street from
their current location. They have outgrown the current building, and
will get to build something that is more green oriented and energy
efficient. PI make some incredible apparel and their new X Project shoes
are the cat’s meow (ok, I always wanted to say that in an article).
Good luck on their new frontier!

 

Pearl Izumi Breaks Ground On New Louisville Headquarters
Run, Ride and Tri Leader to Relocate to Brand New Facility

Louisville, Colorado – November 12, 2012 — Pearl Izumi,
a worldwide leading creator of run, bike and triathlon apparel and
shoes, broke ground last Wednesday at the site of the company’s future
world headquarters in Louisville, CO.

Following a four year stint at
the Colorado Technology Center, Pearl Izumi is transitioning into a
55,000-square-foot, energy efficient building.  The new facility will
accommodate the company’s 160 employees and offer accessibility via the
extensive networks of bike trails that run through Boulder County.

“In
developing plans for the the new headquarters we wanted something that
would reflect and support the active culture Pearl Izumi promotes,” said
Pearl Izumi Global Marketing Director Geoff Shaffer. “Louisville
provides the perfect balance of functional space and outdoor access for
our employees; we couldn’t be happier to stay in this great town which
has already offered us so much.”

The
company opened its first U.S. location in Boulder in 1981, later moving
to Broomfield in 1996 and finally settling into Louisville in 2008. 
Over the past four years Pearl Izumi’s popularity in the outdoor apparel
world has continually expanded causing Louisville city leaders to take
note and offer the company a business assistance package that would
allow the run, ride and tri powerhouse to keep its feet planted firmly
in Louisville.

A blessing ceremony is preformed at the new site

Doors to the new facility are expected to open at the end of 2014.
