SKORA, Inc, the maker of premium, lightweight performance running footwear, is moving to Seattle, Wash., as of July 1, 2014. The new HQ will be located in the Interbay district, just NW of downtown Seattle.
The move brings SKORA closer to some of their key customers and into a hotbed of development for many outdoor, athletic and retail giants, including REI, Amazon, Nordstrom and many more, said the company. “Seattle offers an ideal demographic landscape for the SKORA brand and its premium products and provides a good test market for its products, and a fertile ground for growth,” the company announced.
“It’s a short distance, but a world closer,” said David Sypniewski, Founder and CEO of SKORA. “We’re looking forward to being in Seattle for many reasons, including proximity to many of our biggest customers, which will enable us to provide even faster, more personalized service.”
SKORA’s internal staff is making the move to Seattle.
