Hi-Tec Sports announces the expansion and relocation of their U.S. headquarters to Tigard, OR to support current and future growth of the Hi-Tec and Magnum brands.
The move to Tigard will give both brands increased usable space and allow extra room for expansion, along with the opportunity to build a state of the art showroom, and improved meeting space for key retailer presentations.
Hi-Tec has been based in Portland since 2011 and will remain strategically close in order to stay connected to the many resident outdoor gear brands and players in the footwear industry.
“Starting with five employees in Downtown Portland in January 2013 and growing to our current roster of 22, this move makes perfect sense for our fast growing business,” said Simon Bonham, US CEO at Hi-Tec Sports. “The move to Tigard has already reaped rewards for our staff and customers, who now have a more comfortable, interactive space for line previews and key product showings.” Bonham continued, “we are experiencing significant growth in sales and market share gain for both brands and this move will allow us to continue our aggressive growth plans.”
