I know that it is only July, but that doesn’t mean that the world of ice fishing is at a stand-still.
People like me have ice running in our veins and ice fishing is always in the back of my mind. This certainly holds true right now as I have just received the great news that Clam Outdoors is making a huge move in the industry. Not only are they coming out with some incredible new products, but because of the volume that they produce they are also moving their world headquarters to a brand new facility.
Clam not only supplies ice fishing equipment, but they carry gear for all types of outdoor use. From screen tents, to polar trailers for your tractor or ATV. They have it all!
As a pro-staff member I am itching to be able to announce some of the new products that they will be coming out with as I have been able to play with them first-hand and know that they are going to rock the ice fishing world.
However, for now I wanted to pass along the word that Clam will have a new home and that we can all look forward to some great new products.
Here is what Clam had to say about their new venture.
CLAM Corporation Announces Location of World Headquarters
Rogers, MN. CLAM Corporation is proud to announce that their new location will be in Rogers, MN!! Construction is currently underway on the 150,000 sq. ft. facility located just south of Cabelas and face-fronting Interstate 94.
“We are so pleased to be relocating to Rogers! Even though the weather has not been cooperating, our contractor (Kinghorn) has done a great job to keep us on schedule! Once we are moved in this September we will be able to serve our customers even better than before.” says Dave Osborne, owner of CLAM.
“It will also be nice to have the whole team under one roof instead of being separated between several warehouses.” comments Osborne on the current use of multiple facilities. The new CLAM building will be large enough to accommodate all of CLAM’s brands and operations.
“Coming off of our largest selling season ever we felt it was necessary to move to a larger facility, and with our current sales it looks like we will be leaving last year’s numbers in the dust!”
“Thank you for everyone’s support throughout the years and we are excited to grow with all of you!” concludes Osborne.
CLAM President, Steve Geertsen, shares in Dave’s excitement… “We’re very excited to move into CLAM Corporation’s new world headquarters! We’ve experienced record setting sales growth in both our industry leading ice fishing lines and off-road Polar Trailer products. Add to that the great success we’ve had with the launch of our summer screen tents and summer fishing products, and you’ve got a rapidly growing company without the space to support its growth.”
“Over the past three years we’ve had to split our team, managing multiple locations to support our sales success. Our new building brings our product and our team together in one ideally suited location, improving our operational efficiencies and bringing our personnel together again as one cohesive team.” continues Geertsen.
“From a marketing perspective, our visibility to highway 94 traffic is a great way for us to further reinforce a brand that already leads the outdoor recreation market, and enables us to display our innovative products to all who drive by. The wonderful support we’ve received from the Rogers community makes it clear that we’ve chosen the right location!”
So with CLAM’s rapidly growing product line, it’s only fitting that a new home is built. CLAM looks forward to unveiling the new CLAM World Headquarters in the fall of 2013 as they embark on another exciting winter season!!!
