NEW OFFICE MOVE AND STATE-OF-THE-ART WAREHOUSE FACILITIES

Old Harbor Outfitters, a leader in technical fishing apparel and gear moves into new state-of-the-art warehouse facilities to handle all order fulfillment needs. The new warehouses, one on the East and West Coast will enable the company to streamline order processing and fulfillment with the latest scanning, bar coding, EDI, and warehouse system technology available on the market. “...Building a truly automated and streamlined facility to handle our customer needs is a major investment and step forward.  It will pay huge dividends as we expand our product offering and dealer network now and into the future”  said Ben Jacobson, COO & Director of Ideas.

The new platform will provide a logistics network for warehousing the growing OHO product line including a fully automated pack and ship service in strategically located areas of the country that will lower operating costs and improve customer service. 
It has been a busy winter for everyone at OHO. In April, OHO also completed their move into a new office space located at the eccentrically addressed Foot of Broad Street in Stratford, Connecticut. The new Old Harbor corporate office boasts a breathtaking view of the adjacent marinas and marshlands at the mouth of the Housatonic River.  CEO Steve Tempini calls the new location, “…truly a dream come true. The perfect location for our growing company with plenty of room to expand.”
The new Old Harbor Office truly is a fitting home for the OHO team, sporting panoramic views at sunset over bountiful fishing waters and providing a more than adequate setting for field testing new OHO gear and developing new cutting edge products. The summer is coming and the boats are just starting to get into the water again, and that means fishing season.
