POC North America Plans Relocation to Park City

10/24/2014

Park City, UT (October 24, 2014) — POC, a leading manufacturer of skiing and cycling helmets, apparel and accessories, announces that its North American office will move to Park City, Utah, in early November. 

“Aspen, Colorado, has been good to POC North America, but it has become increasingly evident that a move to Park City will improve our ability to serve our retail and other partners,” states POC’s director of marketing and promotions for North America, Willie Ford. “The region is a hotbed for outdoor-enthusiast professionals and, given our plans to expand our U.S. workforce, we will benefit from a strong candidate pool and major transportation hub in Salt Lake City. Paired with its proximity to renowned road and mountain biking, as well as the USSA Center of Excellence, home to the U.S. Ski Team and a number of our sponsored athletes, Park City was an obvious choice as we considered our options for a relocation.”

The brand expects to expand its personnel in the near-term, starting with a U.S. sales manager for its Snow division, which will be filled in the Utah office. For more information on employment with POC North America, visit www.blackdiamondequipment.com or email jobs@bdel.com.
