Canfield Bikes To Call Colorado Home
Canfield Bikes, high-end mountain-bike manufacturer, today announces it is relocating from Bellingham, WA, to Fruita, CO. Thebrand—which is celebrating 20 years in business—chose Colorado’s Western Slope due to its burgeoning riding community and mountain bike culture, year-long riding season, proximity to a multitude of lift-served bike parks, vast trail networks and alpine riding. The location also offers a logistical advantage for quicker shipping to customers around the country.
In addition, generous incentives were provided by Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) and the Grand Junction Economic Partnership (GJEP).
“Canfield Bikes is a great addition to the Colorado economy. Canfield chose Fruita—a region synonymous with the outdoors—and the company's investment embodies the business expansion and relocation goals that the Strategic Fund was designed to cultivate,” said Michelle Hadwiger, director of global business development for OEDIT. “Fruita and the State equally invested in Canfield and Canfield’s investment will pay back dividends for Colorado, not only in new jobs but in promoting the healthy and active lifestyle that helps keep our talent pool productive and happy.”
