RockyMounts Expands Engineering Staff, Invests In Innovation


Boulder-based car-rack manufacturer hires Simon Hall, engineer integral in BrassKnuckles development.

 BOULDER, CO (January 29, 2014) – Car-rack systems manufacturer RockyMounts announced that it is expanding its engineering staff with the addition of Simon Hall, effective February 1. According to RockyMounts president, Bruno Maier, the new hire is an investment in innovation and the brand's goal to be the leading adventure cargo company in the world.

Hall, a recent graduate of University of Colorado Boulder with a degree in mechanical engineering, has been interning with RockyMounts since May, during which time his talent and enthusiasm quickly found him functioning as a full-fledged member of the engineering team and playing an integral role in the development of the recently released ultra-low-profile BrassKnuckles upright bike rack.

"Simon has added great value to the RockyMounts team," said Patrick Schloth, senior product designer at RockyMounts. "With Simon on the project, I was able to bring BrassKnuckles to market ahead of schedule. It is really hard to find professionals at his level in this field, let alone find someone right out of school who can do the job. I look forward to working with him on designing even more cutting edge products."

The locally owned brand's continued growth will continue throughout 2014 with several new products already scheduled to be released.

"I am thrilled to be a part of the RockyMounts team at a time of such expansion and excitement within the company," said Hall. "Big things are on the way."
