Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), creators of outdoor nomadic comfort including durable hammocks and many adventure travel accessories, is pleased to announce that 2010 marks 10 years in business, a milestone achieved through passion, commitment, and exceptional customers.
Within the last decade, the brand has grown from a 2-man, 1-van operation to a successful and recognizable outdoor and lifestyle brand earning record-breaking sales month after month. However, many don’t realize that success has not come easy to this family owned business, co-founded by brothers Pete and Paul Pinholster. A fire, early in the brother’s career, destroyed their office, inventory, and their hope for a growing company.
â€œIt was heart breaking,â€ remembers Pete Pinholster. â€œWe were tempted to give up, call it a loss and move on, but we realized we had started something, maybe something small, but it was gaining support. We moved to Asheville and decided to give it another try.â€
ENO’s ability to bounce back from the devastating fire and cultivate their authenticity can be attributed to delivering quality products that are aligned with their company mantra and the grassroots support they have garnered along the way. â€œWe are extremely fortunate for our faithful supporters. They have really been the catalyst for our growth since the beginning,â€ states Paul Pinholster. â€œOur customers inspire us to continue developing the best products to help them relax and enjoy their surroundings.â€
The Pinholster brothers do not anticipate a slowing of sales or new product launches anytime soon. â€œWe will continue to provide products designed to fit the needs of festival goers, beach lovers, and inherently, anyone looking to relax and chill,â€ notes Pete Pinholster.
The team invites industry members to join in, in celebrating this milestone at their booth 17039 throughout the summer Outdoor Retailer trade show. Celebrating in true ENO style, attendees are welcome to stop by for some southern hospitality, participant in a round of Corn Hole, hear a drum or guitar, or simply kick back, relax and hang out.
