Built Like A Brick Split House | Spark R&D Purchase New Building

The splitboard binding manufacturers have grown their operation with the purchase of a second 7,000 square foot building

It’s been a busy couple of years for Spark R&D. Following the global surge in splitboarding after bumper back-to-back seasons, the Bozeman based binding manufacturer was able to secure a second building right next door to their HQ.

What does this mean? Well, in short, more machines, more people, more storage space and a hwole lot more growth for every splitboarder’s favourite splitboard brand. Good news all round!

From Spark R&D:

“We’re pleased to announce that last October, we finalized the purchase of a second 7,000 sq/ft building across the street from the 12,000 sq/ft building we’ve utilized for over ten years. We explored numerous options for expansion, including building another facility, but ultimately, we were able to work with a local family that owned the building adjacent to us. This building has housed multiple businesses over the last 3 decades under their ownership, and it feels nice to become stewards of the building putting the space to good use.

You may be wondering why we’re just announcing this now, and the answer is simple: first, the building was not move-in ready and we’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into making the space usable, and second, we’ve been busy making splitboard bindings!

We completed the purchase and moved a lot of product and people to the new building during our busiest (and most challenging) production season to date. While we remain busy as we prepare for the upcoming season, now is as good a time as any to make the announcement. Splitboarding is growing and so is Spark R&D!”
