CO: Colorado Teardrops Announces Expansion And Relocation
9 Nov, 2018
Colorado Teardrops, specializing in premium teardrop style trailers, announced that it’s relocating its headquarters to a new building, allowing for further expansion as the company grows.
The new HQ, located at 1750 55th St. in Boulder CO, accommodates a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing space, sales/marketing/R&D operations, and a newly designed showroom. At 8,000 sq. ft., the new space is double the size of the company’s previous Boulder-based facilities on Central Ave.
Dean Wiltshire founded Colorado Teardrops in Boulder in 2014, with the goal of providing streamlined, durable, and comfortable teardrop style trailers to adventure-seekers of all types. This year marks a turning point for the company: in June, the company beefed up its sales and marketing team and opened its first-ever seasonal pop-up shop in Denver. In August, Robert Petty, an accomplished IT industry veteran, was named CEO of the company, with Wiltshire appointed chairman.
“I think the early success of our company is due, in part, to the new type of outdoor enthusiast that has emerged in the outdoor and travel industries: those looking to adventure and get off the grid without having to sacrifice convenience and comfort,” said Wiltshire. “Our customers are diverse. In any given week, we’re designing and building trailers for peakbaggers, retirees, weekend warriors, young families – you name it, we serve them. Our trailers are for anyone who wants to escape the crowds and enjoy the outdoors.”
With a a number of regional trade shows, consumer events, and enhanced digital marketing strategies planned, the company is projecting 100% growth in 2019.
“Up until this point, our growth has been mainly word of mouth and organic. We’re extremely excited for our expansion and this next chapter in our business,” said Wiltshire. “Our goal is to continue to offer the highest quality trailers at the best value, and be able to serve more people. We’re building adventures and creating lifelong memories for our customers. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
