Cortez, CO – September 4, 2012 – Osprey Packs, Inc., a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative packs to comfortably and efficiently carry gear, is pleased to announce the addition of Larry Bratton as distribution center manager, working on integration and optimization of warehouse logistics and operations.

Bratton comes to Osprey with more than 15 years of senior management experience, most recently as district warehouse and inventory control manager at Asarco in Tucson, AZ.

“Larry brings a proven track record of vision and fulfillment excellence coupled with a willingness to roll up his sleeves and tackle the task at hand,” said David Dunn, Osprey’s director of operations. “He will be joining an Osprey Operations Team eager to grow under his leadership.”

“I love to catch people doing their job well and to see their pride of ownership,” said Bratton. “This is one of the main reasons I joined Osprey – a company that takes pride in running their business well. I look forward to joining and contributing to the growth of the Osprey brand.”

Osprey Packs

Independent since 1974 and anchored by the design genius of company founder and owner, Mike Pfotenhauer, Osprey Packs has long set the standard for creating innovative, high quality gear carrying equipment. The collection includes packs and bags designed to help adventurers enjoy their outdoor, biking and travel pursuits.

The location of company headquarters in Cortez, Colorado, near the rugged San Juan Mountains and on the edge of desert canyon country, provides a constant inspiration and a superb testing ground for Osprey products. Osprey also maintains a product development office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, near the factories where they manufacture their products, ensuring face-to-face relationships and transparency with their suppliers. In 2010, Osprey opened a design office in Mill Valley, California, a hub of design talent and the birthplace of mountain biking. All three of these offices play a crucial role in creating Osprey gear that lasts a lifetime.

To celebrate its 35th anniversary in 2009, Osprey launched the All Mighty Guarantee, an enhancement of a lifetime warranty that was already one of the most robust in the industry. Free of charge, the company will repair any damage or defect in its product – whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday. Every Osprey product reflects the company’s commitment to protect the wild places its customers love to explore. For more information, visit www.ospreypacks.com.
