Kent Outdoors Relocates-Plans Summit County, Utah, Headquarters

Sporting good manufacturer Kent Outdoors plans to relocate its headquarters to Summit County, Utah. The project is expected to create 84 jobs over the next five years.

"We're thrilled to move Kent Outdoors' headquarters to Utah to embrace the state's vibrant business environment and cherished outdoor lifestyle," said Matt Eby, Chairman of the Seawall Board of Directors, the private equity owner of Kent Outdoors."We look forward to contributing to Utah's community, exploring its landscapes, and fostering strong partnerships with like-minded individuals and brands. This relocation signifies a new chapter for us, aligning our family of brands with Utah's dynamic spirit for mutual success."

Originally Kent Watersports, with the acquisition of Kona Bicycles and BOTE in 2021, the company rebranded to Kent Outdoors.

“It’s a smart choice that will surely contribute to Utah’s continued growth as a hub for outdoor enthusiasts and thriving businesses alike,” noted Ryan Starks, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity.
