Utah Continues to Attract Outdoors Companies

Three outdoor products companies plan to expand or relocate operations to Utah, according to news reports yesterday. State officials say the announcement “solidifies the state as a premiere location for outdoor-related businesses.”

"Our unique environment and unparalleled quality of life, coupled with our state's great location, incredible work force and friendly business environment make Utah a perfect fit for outdoor related business," Economic Development Corporation of Utah President and CEO Jeff Edwards said in a statement.

Representatives from Backcountry.com, Peregrine Outfitters and Smith Sport Optics made their announcements on the third day of the annual Outdoor Retailers Winter Market Expo, a trade show that annually brings more than 14,000 outdoor industry manufacturers, retailers, distributors and wholesalers.
