    2 Desks

     

    The number of remaining work areas we have for new employees.

    After moving to our new headquarters, with more room than ever we had some room to stretch our legs.

    But, our staff grew by another 50% this year and are out of space for our Gear Experts again. So, we’ve moved to Phase II of our expansion to continue to assist our customers! 

    More on that below...

    Stocked in our office each week. We... are a caffeinated bunch. If you have to tell us to slow down on the phone, we understand.


     

    50%

    The amount our staff grew again this year. We’re onboarding Gear Experts as fast as our HR team can print off new hire documents.
