(Brevard, N.C.)â€”SylvanSport, the premier mobile adventure gear manufacturer, is pleased to announce it recently opened an expanded manufacturing facility to support projected sales growth and facilitate new product development. The new space more than triples the facility’s square footage.
â€œThe building, when fully completed, will increase our production capacity significantly and be key to our growth as a company,â€ said Patrick Kennedy, operations manager. â€œIt is part of the ongoing process to strengthen the SylvanSport brand and strive to be a leader amongst American-made gear manufacturers.â€œ
The 18,000 square foot renovated facility expands manufacturing capacity for the GO, SylvanSport’s signature multi-use adventure trailer, and provides additional space for new product development and production in 2013. Additionally, the business offices will be renovated and expanded to accommodate newly added positions including production manager and sales manager.
â€œOur decision to expand in Brevard speaks to the tremendously supportive environment in western North Carolina for the outdoor industry. Organizations like Advantage West, Transylvania County, and the City of Brevard, along with the superb outdoor recreation make this a magical place,â€ commented SylvanSport CEO, Thomas Dempsey.
The GO, was designed from the frame out to be a one-of-a-kind mobile adventure trailer. Lightweight and easy to manage, the GO can be pulled by even the smallest of cars. The GO can carry up to a dozen bikes, kayaks or any combination thereof. It is much more than a pop-up camper; it is an American made, gear-hauling, hyper-engineered, fully tig-welded piece of Mobile Adventure Gear.
