Business: Capita übernimmt Elans Snowboardfabrik

Capita expandiert in Europa: Der US-Snowboardhersteller hat die im März bankrott gegangene Snowboardfabrik von Elan in Furnitz, Österreich, übernommen. Der ehemalige Elan CEO Michael Kollman wurde zum Direktor der Produktionsstätte ernannt.

Für Capita, deren Snowboards wie die vieler anderer Firmen bei Elan gebaut werden, war dieser Schritt nötig, um eine pünktliche Auslieferung der 2013/14er Winterkollektion sicherzustellen. Neben Standort-Chef Michael Kollman werden sich 50 qualifizierte Mitarbeiter um die Produktion kümmern.

Hier die offizielle Mitteilung von Capita:

Seattle, Washington – May 16, 2013 – CAPiTA announced today it has assumed control of the Elan snowboard factory in Furnitz, Austria. CAPiTA will continue to produce snowboards at the renowned Austrian factory under its own management utilizing the technology, expertise and talents that made it one of the premier snowboard manufacturing facilities in the world over the last twenty five years.

At an April 12, 2013 insolvency hearing, the CAPiTA ownership group filing under the Austrian name C4future GmbH was granted legal right to assume control of the factory. Facility control was obtained April 15 and the entire factory is again operational producing CAPiTA snowboards at this time.

Former Elan Austria CEO and Technical Director Michael Kollman brings eighteen years of manufacturing experience at the facility to the CAPiTA team as Director of Production. Fifty highly skilled factory operatives have also been retained. CAPiTA President Blue Montgomery commented, “This is a milestone in regard to our long held vision of vertical integration and production control. Our first commitment is ensuring our ability to deliver our 2013/14 line, consistent with our samples and on schedule, with the high quality standards that people expect of our snowboards. We’ve produced at this factory for ten years. We know the facility, technology and team very well and we’re sure of our ability to deliver our best lineup of boards to date.”

CAPiTA Snowboarding is based on the fishing docks of Seattle, Washington and is recognized throughout the industry for unique graphics, progressive product, and worldclass athletes. CAPiTA Super Corporation | We devour everything!
