Fox Factory Holding Corp., manufacturer of some of the world’s best shock absorbers and racing suspension products for snowmobiles, mountain bikes, motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, off-road cars, trucks, and SUVs, has announced plans to expand its bike division to Asheville, North Carolina.
“We are very excited to now call Asheville, NC home for one of our bike division’s satellite offices focused on service, sales, engineering, R&D, distribution, and finance,” stated Larry L. Enterline, FOX’s Chief Executive Officer. “Along with a very passionate mountain biking culture, we believe Asheville offers us the ability to tap into a top-notch talent pool to help us continue to improve our business in these functional areas.”
The company will soon begin renovations on a 20,000 square foot facility in south Asheville, making it part of an ever-growing community of outdoor industry members in Western North Carolina.
The new FOX location will be tasked with facilitating growth of the company’s bikes division in the Eastern U.S. and European markets.
For Asheville, the move amounts to 47 new outdoor industry jobs over the next five years.
“The announcement today is about more than quality career opportunities for Buncombe County,” shared Brownie Newman, Chairman of the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners. “The FOX name is internationally recognized and a natural fit for our economy, our community, and our mountains.”
