Out-Foxing Inefficiency

To Fox, the creation of a campus environment means an opportunity to foster increased innovation and collaboration between its teams and customers. The building will house functions necessary to utilize material from a “raw material” standpoint all the way through manufacturing, anodizing, pre-assembly, full-assembly, and shipping within the same building, reducing the need to ship product to other facilities to complete necessary steps prior to packaging. This building will be the first for the Fox family that will house anodizing and clean room facilities within a building owned by the company itself, eliminating the need to outsource activities in their overall shock production process.

The Sky’s the Limit

Site challenges require creative solutions. Sometimes when a job site can’t utilize a crane to set materials due to limited access, we have to figure out a unique way to accomplish the task. On the Fox Factory project, we tackled this challenge by using a Sikorsky helicopter to successfully set 33 HVAC units in place on the roof.

The decision to expand our manufacturing and operations, relocate our headquarters, and move our aftermarket bike operations was the result of extensive research by our team and will better support the needs of our growing business over the next several years.
