Vista Outdoor Inc. Plans Corporate Headquarters In Farmington City, Utah
The company operates in two segments, Shooting Sports and Outdoor Products, and has more than 30 well-recognized brands that provide consumers with a range of performance-driven, high-quality and innovative products in the ammunition, firearms and outdoor accessories categories. Vista Outdoor plans to move from its temporary headquarters in Clearfield, Utah, once the Farmington location is complete in mid-2016.
“Vista Outdoor’s mission is to bring the world outside,” said Mark DeYoung, Vista Outdoor Chairman/CEO “Utah is an epicenter for individual outdoor recreation and an outstanding place to do business. The state has a talented and well-educated workforce and a great quality of life. Locating our corporate headquarters here was a natural fit.”
“Vista Outdoor will establish high-paying corporate jobs in Utah over the next several years as we expand our existing portfolio of iconic outdoor brands and grow our new company,” DeYoung added. “Station Park’s attractive design and amenities, access to major transportation routes, and its proximity to the Salt Lake City International Airport make the location a great place for us to begin this exciting journey.”
Station Park is a mixed-use, blended power and town center adjacent to a new commuter rail station, I-15 and Legacy Parkway. CenterCal Properties owns and operates Station Park and will construct the building under a lease agreement with Vista Outdoor.
“This announcement underscores the fact that Northern Utah has become a go-to location for many outdoor companies’ headquarters and major operations,” said Val Hale, Executive Director of Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “Vista Outdoor will be joining dozens of other outdoor companies in the area, and we look forward to the significant contributions they will make to the industry.”
“Farmington, located in the heart of Davis County, is a wonderful place for Vista Outdoor to grow their operations,” said Jeff Edwards, President/CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Utah. “Davis County’s labor force is one of the youngest and most well educated in Utah. And Farmington Station’s proximity to FrontRunner, Utah’s extensive commuter rail line, makes it a prime location for this corporate headquarters.”
“Farmington is excited to welcome Vista Outdoor,” said Jim Talbot, Mayor of the City of Farmington. “We understand why they choose Farmington. We know that we and all of Davis County will reap the benefit of having such a nationally recognized corporate presence. We also know that Vista Outdoor is a great anchor for the business park we are developing and the Station Park area in general. We look forward to working with them for many years to come.
