Taxa Outdoors announced it will open its new 69,356 square-foot headquarters in northwest Houston on December 23, 2020.
The new facility will allocate 60,000 square feet for its expanded factory, including three production lines and allowing for production capacity exceeding 3,000 habitats per year.
Taxa has seen a significant increase in the number of habitats the company is selling nationwide, a trend reflective of the current state of the outdoor and RV industries. Taxa said its 2020 shipments are up 30 percent annually with a current backlog at six months and forecasts its 2021 shipments to double in 2020.
“Taxa’s home is in Space City USA, and even though COVID-19 has disrupted much of the travel industry, our business is growing as more people are taking road trips to explore the outdoors,” said Garrett Finney, CEO, Taxa Outdoors. “Every habitat that has left our factory since March has been presold to the end consumer without any inventory sitting on dealer lots. Our new factory will lead to increased production to meet demand. As we see families take work and school on the road, we see tremendous opportunity to enable more people to adventure outside.”
In addition to bolstering production, approximately 9,000 square feet of its headquarters will be allocated for offices and gallery space to show the Taxa’s habitats. Located at 7930 Blankenship Drive, Houston, TX, the new facility will also house a podcast studio, meeting area and community yoga space.
Taxa’s move comes on the heels of the company’s announcement of three new Overland models to its habitat lineup for 2021— the Mantis Overland, Cricket Overland and TigerMoth Overland.
