SPOKANE, WA — GSI Outdoors, a family-owned maker of innovative outdoor cooking and dining gear, has partnered with Press Forward for media relations, product placement, and communications strategy.
“As we enter into our 35th year, we are very excited to be adding Press Forward to our team. GSI is set for another strong year of product launches and Press Forward’s energy and passion will play a central role in getting our messages out,” said Don Scott, President.
GSI Outdoors offers a deep array of durable and innovative gear options for any outdoor setting, including the well-loved Infinity Backpacker mug, space-saving nesting cooksets, and the adventure-ready Javapress. In addition, GSI has pioneered ultralight stainless steel vacuum bottles in a multitude of designs and sizes for every need.
Earning kudos at January’s Outdoor Retailer show for forthcoming 2020 releases, GSI Outdoors won GearJunkie’s Best in Show award and an Editor’s Choice award from Popular Mechanics for the forthcoming Pinnacle Pro Stove. Featuring years-in-the-making innovations in burner technology and stove construction, the two-burner camp stove folds down to only 1.4” tall for ultra-compact storage, making it the thinnest on the market.
“We’re thrilled to be working with GSI Outdoors,” said Kathryn Flagg, a partner at Press Forward. “We share their love of good food and adventure, and have long admired their innovative take on gear designed to make cooking, eating, and drinking outside more fun and more delicious.”
The company was founded in San Diego, CA in 1985 by siblings Don, Ian, and Kathy Scott, after they journeyed there from their native British Columbia. Then and now, the Scotts envisioned GSI Outdoors as a way to combine their passions for food and the outdoors: They see food as a way of bringing people together, having fun in the outdoors and connecting to the world around us. Through inventive, imaginative, and most of all enjoyable products that celebrate the outdoors, GSI Outdoors encourages connection and appreciation of the natural world.
The company has remained family-owned since the Scotts first founded it in San Diego. Now operated out of Spokane, WA, GSI Outdoors has since its founding grown from a small gear distribution company to a major maker of cooking and hydration gear that distributes internationally.
