State-of-the-Art Facility Purpose-Built for The Family Footwear Brand
MARYSVILLE, Wash. – June 30, 2016 –Family outdoor footwear brand Northside today announced that it is moving to a larger, state-of-the-art facility in Marysville, Wash. The move is spurred by accelerated growth of the Northside brand both domestically and internationally in recent years. The newly built office and warehouse space will support continued projected growth into the future.
Northside, owned by Triple T Trading, LTD, is rooted in the Pacific Northwest and is staying in the city of Marysville, a small rural community north of Seattle. The company is moving from a 30,000-square-foot building to a new 110,000-square-foot office/warehouse complex, which will allow Northside to consolidate operations, as the company has been using off-site warehousing for several years. All current and future Northside staff will now be under one roof, including management, operations, purchasing, design and development, administrative and accounting functions.
The new warehouse was purpose-built for Northside, and incorporates the latest wire guide materials handling technology and five-high racking to maximize efficiency and space. The building is split into 15,000-square-feet of office, and over 90,000-square-feet of highly efficient warehouse.
“It is an exciting time for the Northside brand,” said Jack Wolfin, President of Triple T Trading. “We are thankful to stay in beautiful Marysville, overlooking majestic Mt Pilchuck and the Cascade mountain range. This is our home, and we found the perfect property to build and house our entire organization. The move is a result of our strategic growth and the new building will help us achieve our mission: to better service our customers and meet the footwear needs of families and recreational outdoor enthusiasts.”
The Northside brand was founded in 2000 with a focus on the other side of outdoor recreation. Northside proudly serves families and average, everyday recreational hikers and campers for whom the highly technical (and expensive) legacy brands may not be the best choice.
