Big Agnes and Honey Stinger to Relocate to Larger Steamboat Springs Headquarters

Big Agnes and Honey Stinger to Relocate to Larger Steamboat Springs Headquarters

(STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo.) Sept. 6, 2016 –  Long-time outdoor brands Big Agnes and Honey Stinger will finally join office operations under one roof in Steamboat Springs.  For years, the sister companies have looked to consolidate several office spaces located throughout town to one larger location. Located within minutes of Steamboat Ski Area, the Yampa River and trails, the new headquarters features two floors and an underground parking garage.

“Consolidating our operations into one space has long been a goal of ours,” said Bill Gamber, Honey Stinger/Big Agnes co-founder and president. “We feel tremendously fortunate to have found a property in Steamboat Springs that not only accommodates our growing staff, but also gives us close access to local trails, the ski area and the Yampa River for our favorite activities like Nordic and downhill skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking and fly fishing.”

The new building will accommodate more than 60 employees from several departments, including accounting, product development, sales, marketing, customer service, dealer services and warranty. While Big Agnes and Honey Stinger remain separate business entities, the consolidation will be beneficial as some ownership and staff roles are shared between companies. Honey Stinger and Big Agnes anticipate some minor remodeling, but they expect to move a first wave of employees into the new headquarters in early October 2016.
