Wheat Ridge, CO, July 26, 2018 Co-owners Jason Peter, Zach Svoboda and Phil Walczynski are excited that the industry comes together in their home state.
“It makes sense to me,” states Phil, who settled here in ’88, “Colorado has been considered the unofficial hub by many of my peers in the industry for years, now it’s official.”
Down River has called Colorado home since 1985 and has watched as many other companies have started or moved here since then.
Jason, who’s a native, explains; “The folks who work in the industry are obviously outdoor enthusiasts. Companies end up in Colorado partly because there’s such a variety of outdoor sports available for their staff to enjoy.”
Down River has seen the State, counties, and cities team up to make it easier for companies to do business in Colorado. There is clearly a movement for outdoor businesses to stay, start up, or move to Colorado.
“When we moved to our new headquarters in 2017, the city of Wheat Ridge representatives worked hard to get us into our new building. Which allowed us to get back to doing what we do.” Says Zach, who moved here in 2000.
