SALT LAKE CITY, (September 7, 2016) – Niche Snowboards announced their move to The Mothership, the most environmentally responsible snowboard factory in the world, to produce their line of eco-friendly snowboards.
Located in Feistritz an der Gail, Austria, The Mothership is a 100 percent hydro powered facility, providing all energy for production and climate control resulting in a zero C02 emission release. The facility also includes other progressive capabilities like the use of water-based inks, plant-based resin and solvent-free finishing. In addition, the facility sources raw materials from suppliers in close proximity to reduce the carbon footprint of transportation.
The Mothership offers complete in-house production capabilities as well as a state of the art R&D lab and on-site testing slope. Onsite in-line testing of raw materials and finished product ensures the highest standard of manufacturing from start to finish.
“Partnering with The Mothership is a match made in heaven. We are beyond thrilled to have found a home with like-minded, passionate people, who share our desire to make choices that lessen our impacts on the planet and preserve the climate we need in order to enjoy snowboarding,” said Ana Van Pelt, Co-Founder of Niche Snowboards. Kirsten Kolter, Co-Founder of Niche adds, “The Mothership is a beautiful architectural and progressive accomplishment that will set the standard for production in our industry.
