WE ARE YOUR
Founded in 2005, WERX design was born to partner with leading gear companies to assist in their quest to both break into new product areas and achieve elevated levels of performance for existing products. We enjoy working on products we use ourselves in the activities we love, and strive to reimagine everything from construction, fit, and function. We believe in a creative approach to design, thorough product testing, and complete oversight of the manufacturing process. We strive to meld old world craftsmanship with today’s performance needs.
WERX is based in Fort Collins, Colorado where the outdoor elements are at our finger tips. On the slope, on the trail, or in the field, our team has the opportunity to observe new trends in apparel and gear, and has endless locations to test our products in real-life elements. We are fortunate to work in an environment that feeds our creativity and inspires us daily. Our studio is conducive to product design summits, prototype reviews, and energetic brainstorming sessions alike.
Our large and ever-expanding list of suppliers
gives our clients the greatest advantage in their competitive marketplace. Our team can frequently be found overseas reviewing development and inspecting production.
Since 2009 we have operated a full-time WERX office in Asia that supports design, sourcing, and production. This satellite location gives us a competitive advantage, and helps us resolve production issues quickly and efficiently.
