LANDER, Wyo. (April 22, 2021) – Maven Outdoor Equipment Company, a direct-to-consumer brand known for offering world-class optics at affordable prices, has entered into an agreement with the City of Lander and the Lander Economic Development Association (LEDA) to build a new world headquarters near the gateway entrance of Lander, Wyoming.
The new 22,500-square-foot facility will sit on 1.6 acres adjacent to LEDA’s Enterprise Park and the Central Wyoming College’s Lander campus. It will include roughly 6,000 square feet of office and administration space along with more than 16,000 square feet of warehouse and production space.
The new headquarters will greatly increase Maven’s ability to grow with its steadily increasing consumer demands by giving the brand more capacity to assemble and repair optics. It will also provide new opportunities for expanded product lines.
“First and foremost, we want to thank the Lander Economic Development Association for partnering with us and the Wyoming Business Council for giving us the approval needed to make it happen,” said Brendon Weaver, Co-founder and Head of Design and Marketing for Maven. “We are proud to call Lander home and we’re excited for the opportunity to continue growing our business here.”
Funding for the project will be provided from a loan/lease program operated by the Wyoming Business Council. Maven will lease the facility from LEDA and the resulting proceeds, an estimated $2.2 million, will be used to fund additional economic development in the Lander area.
“The City of Lander is excited for this award for the Maven HQ Project because it not only retains 12 existing jobs but stimulates our economic growth by adding 23 jobs over the next 5 years,” explained Assistant Mayor RaJean Stube-Fossen. “It also provides LEDA a revenue stream for the next 5 years so they can turn around and assist Lander in future economic developments.”
Construction of the project is expected to start this fall and be completed by the summer of 2022. To learn more about Maven, or shop their extensive line of best-in-class optics, visit www.mavenbuilt.com.
