(Jackson Hole, WY & Charlotte, NC – September 25, 2009) Mountain Khakis®, a premier outdoor-lifestyle apparel brand “Built for the Mountain Life”, and the Gaston County Economic Development Commission proudly announce MK's new fulfillment warehouse in Gastonia, North Carolina.

A strategic move to better serve their 1000 US dealers and increase overall production and operations management (POM) efficiency, Mountain Khakis® relocated their warehouse from a third party operation in Texas to their own facility in North Carolina, in close proximity to their Charlotte office.

“This move from Texas to Gastonia will allow our company to improve quality control, better serve our customers, and improve operational efficiencies and savings. The entire process has gone quite well” stated Dan Royle, Mountain Khakis'® COO. “We are very pleased with Gastonia and our new location. I would like to thank Marc Bolick and the Gaston County Economic Development Commission for their hard work and assistance.”

Mountain Khakis® recently announced its rank among America's “Fastest-Growing Private Companies” as position #404 on the 2009 Inc. 500 register. Founded in 2004, Mountain Khakis® was measured among the nation's top-performing entrepreneurs, having experienced 638% growth as compared to the 3-year Industry average of 16.42%, and the Inc. 500 Industry median of 162.8%. Within the Consumer Products & Services Category, Mountain Khakis® ranks #34.

As well as being a leader in the nation, Mountain Khakis® is a leader in its industry. Their top-selling Original Mountain Pant or "OMP" is joined among the best-selling ranks by their Teton Twill Pant and Alpine Utility Pant or "AUP".
