SUPGlobal visitied the Boardworks warehouse in Oceanside last year, but now the demand for stand up paddle boards and surf boards has enabled them to expand operations.
Of real interest is the decision to open an inland centre for SUP (Boardworks run the C4 Waterman line), showing the growth of the sport in flat water and river areas. The press release is as follows :
'It’s been a critical part of our future plans to open new distribution facilities as near to the market as possible. We are happy to announce the opening of a major new facility in Encinitas, California and two satellite warehouses, one in Indianapolis, Indiana and a one in Indian Harbor Beach, Florida. The goal is simple: get our boards to retail as quickly and cheaply as possible', said Boardwork’s Bob Reif.
Encinitas, California: Boardworks Surf has moved its International Headquarters and West Coast Distribution center from Oceanside, California to a newer and bigger facility in Encinitas. “It was time for us to move on up. With our move to 2nd Street in Old Encinitas we have a much larger warehouse, better offices and we are located in the center of the North County surf market. It’s an added bonus to be west of the PCH and one block from Moonlight Beach.”
Indianapolis, Indiana: Our new Boardworks Surf sales rep, Tim Truman will stock C4 Waterman products at his satellite warehouse facility in Indianapolis. We are thrilled to bring Tim on board.
With the tremendous growth potential for SUP in the inland lake community, Tim will be able support the expansion efforts of the C4 brand offering excellent service to his retailers backed by a substantial inventory. Tim’s facility is centrally located and will make it possible for many mid west dealers to draw on our C4 SUP boards, paddles and accessories.
