Outlast moves from Boulder to Golden
Last Updated: 14:25 July 22, 2013
Outlast, a developer and manufacturer of fabrics for outdoor and home use, will have 14 employees working at its new headquarters at 831 Pine Ridge Road on the north side of Golden, said Heather Manuel, an Outlast spokeswoman.
The move took place over the weekend. Employees are working outside of the office through Thursday, July 25, while furniture is installed and computer servers are hooked up, Manuel said.
Outlast moved because its owner, private-equity firm Golden Equity Investments - is in Golden, Manuel said. Golden Equity Investments bought Outlast for an undisclosed sum in April 2012. Outlast Technologies continues to operate under the Outlast name, which has "strong brand equity," Manuel said.
Outlast technology is used to make fabrics that are able to absorb, store and release heat. The technology originally was developed for NASA to protect astronauts from temperature fluctuations in space. Jockey International Inc.'s Stay Cool underwear uses Outlast fabric. The fabric also is used in Sealy brand mattresses.
Outlast fabrics can respond to changes in a person's skin temperature to manage heat and reduce moisture. In addition to the clothing and bedding, Outlast technology also is used to make footwear, packaging, labels and accessories.
Outlast was founded in 1990. In total, the company has 33 employees and operations in Heidenheim, Germany, and in Tokyo.
