Press Release: Preserving Skilled Manufacturing Jobs in New Hampshire
Burgeon Outdoor acquires select production assets, preserves skilled manufacturing jobs in New Hampshire
Product Line Expansion
LINCOLN, New Hampshire, September 27, 2022 – Burgeon Outdoor has acquired select production assets of a legendary mountaineering brand and is expanding its operation into Gorham. As a result of this acquisition, Burgeon will add New England cold weather essentials to its product line. These will include Burgeon’s first ever hardshell jacket and pants - capable of handling the worst conditions the White Mountains have to offer. These new products have recently entered production and will be ready for purchase by the winter holiday season. Burgeon is eager to expand its presence in the skiing and winter hiking scenes and this acquisition marks an important step in doing so. Burgeon Outdoor’s first hardshell, the Tuckerman Hardshell Jacket, will be available for pre-order via Kickstarter in November.
Keeping Jobs in New Hampshire
With this acquisition, Burgeon will be growing its production team. While remaining headquartered in Lincoln, NH, Burgeon has recently added to its production team in Gorham, NH. The Burgeon name will now be seen in both Lincoln and Gorham.
