Outdoors company to move headquarters to Interlocken

Exxel Outdoors will relocate from leased space in Boulder to 1 International Court in first-quarter 2020.

A Boulder-based outdoor gear company is moving its world headquarters to Interlocken.

Exxel Outdoors LLC, whose brands include Kelty, Sierra Designs and Slumberjack, among others, will relocate to the 39,072-square-foot ESRI building at 1 International Court in Broomfield in the first quarter. Exxel affiliate Nolan Way LLC bought the building for $6 million, or $153.56 per sf, according to public records.

Larger than Exxel Outdoors’ current headquarters in Gunbarrel, which has 110 employees, the building will be renovated and updated prior to move-in. The property offers exterior balconies and patios where employees will be able to enjoy the landscape and mountain views.

“The breathtaking views and outdoor spaces will serve our outdoor-loving staff well,” said Exxel Outdoors CEO and Chairman Harry Kazazian.

Kazazian said the building’s location equidistant between Denver and Boulder will enable the company to attract top talent. Plus, “The spaciousness will meet the needs of our future expansion.” The company also was attracted to the property because of Broomfield’s” “pro-business, future-looking mentality,” Kazazian said.

Eric Brynestad and Ken Gooden of JLL represented the seller, affiliates of ESRI, in the transaction. Lee Diamond of CBRE Inc. represented Exxel Outdoors.

ESRI declined to discuss the sale.

Exxel Outdoors, whose products include a wide range of outdoor products and apparel, is the nation’s largest manufacturer of sleeping bags.
