As the seasons are transitioning and we're all getting excited and ready for the snow and ice to get here, we're also making some big changes here at NW Alpine. For the past year and a half our offices have been housed in a warehouse in Portland's Central Eastside Industrial District. This has been an excellent location for us (aside from the horrendous parking) and has been a great place for our business to grow.
Unfortunately we've outgrown this space and have been looking at alternatives for a while. In talking with our primary manufacturer, who is growing right alongside us, we decided the best course of action would be to partner up and share a space. Thus we've rented a 3,000 square foot warehouse in Newberg, Oregon (30 minutes soutwest of Portland) that will house some of our operations along with our primary manufacturer's operation.
This is exciting for a number of reasons. This move will help streamline our production increasing efficiency, decreasing lead times and allowing for superior quality control. This move will also help create more manufacturing jobs in Oregon, which is obviously one of our core values.
All that being said, please be patient with us for the next couple of weeks as we transition into this new and exciting time for NW Alpine. Thanks again to all of our tribe who have made NW Alpine what it is, we appreciate your ongoing support.
