The 310,000 square foot facility is located in Seattle's SODO district and will be the home to more than 220 of the company's employees. "On behalf of the state of Washington, and as a long-time skier, I am pleased to welcome K2 to its new neighborhood in Seattle," said Washington Governor Chris Gregoire who was there to help with the opening ceremony. "Our natural environment makes Washington an important destination for outdoor enthusiasts and I am pleased that K2 recognizes the benefit of making Washington their home."
