Leupold & Stevens, Inc., provider of the world’s most rugged, lightweight, and clear sport optics, is pleased to announce that it will soon begin construction on a new Distribution Center, to be located on the company’s Beaverton, Ore., property. Leupold broke ground on the new Distribution Center on Wednesday, August 4.

The new, state-of-the-art facility will be located in the southwest corner of Leupold’s 27-acre campus in Beaverton, which has been the company’s home since the late 1960s. The new distribution center will replace Leupold’s smaller, existing facility, which is located offsite. Upon the project’s completion, Leupold will have more than 200,000 square feet of office, manufacturing, and distribution space onsite.

“We pride ourselves on the dominant performance of our products and our commitment to providing excellent service to our customers,” said Bruce Pettet, President and Chief Executive Officer of Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Having our new distribution center on-site at our existing corporate campus will increase efficiency and help us bring even more overall value to our customers. It’s a testament both to the growing strength of our brand and the support that our partners and core consumers have shown us.”

Leupold & Stevens has been located in northwest Oregon since the company’s founding in 1907. Leupold & Stevens moved out of its original Portland facility and into its Beaverton location in 1968. All but a handful of Leupold’s more than 700 employees work out of the Beaverton headquarters, where all of the company’s riflescopes and red dot sights are designed, machined, and assembled.
