KEEN Employees Visit New Portland Factory

KEEN employees recently had the opportunity to visit our Portland factory. We used part of a Friday morning to abandon our desks, board an EcoShuttle, and make our way over to the factory to begin the tour.

Located just 5 miles from our headquarters, the Portland factory was opened in December of 2010 in an effort to bring local manufacturing back to America and to create sourcing options for the future.

We’re very grateful to have recently been recognized by the White House for helping build the future for insourcing and innovation.

Here are a few photos from the tour:
