Goose Gear Plans Grand Junction, Colorado, Headquarters
“As Goose Gear embarks on its 10th year, we’re excited to announce Grand Junction as our new home,” said Brian Fulton, Founder and CEO of Goose Gear. “The city’s exceptional outdoor lifestyle echoes our passion and offers strategic advantages for our business. GJEP’s incredible support has been instrumental in facilitating this transition, making Grand Junction an obvious choice for our next chapter.”
The project is being supported by the Job Growth Tax Incentive through the Economic Development Commission (EDC). The Job Growth Incentive Tax Credit is an eight-year job creation incentive to support competitive, multi-state, or county relocation and expansion projects. The tax credit provides businesses with a Colorado state income tax credit equal to 50% of FICA (Federal Insurance Contributions Act) tax paid by the business per net new job for each calendar year in the credit period.
Additionally, Goose Gear was awarded $55,000 from Grand Junction Economic Partnership and Industrial Development, Inc (IDI), a sister organization to the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce, to help offset relocation costs, including the transportation of manufacturing equipment.
“GJEP is beyond excited to welcome Goose Gear into our community! Goose Gear is an industry leader in the outdoor manufacturing space and their business is a perfect fit for our community,” noted GJEP Executive Director Curtis Englehart. “As we continued to meet with Goose Gear, we were inspired by their unwavering commitment to prioritize their employees’ superior quality of life in their new location. With great confidence, we anticipate Goose Gear’s flourishing presence in the Grand Junction area. We eagerly look forward to witnessing the positive and lasting impact they will undoubtedly make on our community,”
Goose Gear specializes in manufacturing high-quality camping systems for vehicle-based recreation.
