ENO featured on Asheville’s local news station: News 13 WLOS for Entrepreneurship Week.

“The business of enjoying the beauty of our region is becoming big business. People across North Carolina spend $19.2 Billion in the Outdoor Industry each year. During National Entrepreneurship Week, Advantage West is showcasing the home-grown companies that are developing and building outdoor gear locally. It created the Outdoor Gear Builders of WNC, which is an alliance of the manufacturers of outdoor recreational equipment. This morning, member companies met at The Prestige Adventure Center on Tunnel Road. They showed News 13’s Victoria Dunkle some of their gear. It included ENO, Eagles Nest Outfitters, hammocks that fold up into a portable cube. Outrider USA shared the fun they harnessed in their electric bikes and trikes that they make in Fletcher and she learned about the world-class kayaks coming from the liquidlogic facility in the Mountains. Along with the economic impact from sales, the Outdoor Industry accounts for 192,000 jobs in our state. Click here to learn more about the companies that make up the Outdoor Gear Builders of WNC.”
