It’s known as the great outdoors. In Asheville, that word can also describe the future of outdoor-product companies – great.

A few of the successful organizations that are poised for prosperous years in this area, rich with natural resources, include Pyrahna Mouldings (a British-based kayaks and canoe company with an Asheville location), Astral Buoyancy Company, (which specializes in clothing, primarily buoyancy jackets), Columbia and The North Face.


The new Nantahala Outdoor Center at The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa, features gear and apparel from popular outdoor retailers, only adds to the potential.

Being part of the new store is “a great opportunity to showcase the innovative products from Columbia and further our partnership with NOC, a premier outfitter in the Southeast,” says Columbia sales representative Chappie Powell.

"Having The North Face involved with two great companies like the NOC and Grove Park Inn is a great fit," says Adam Pinkston, representative for The North Face. "Having the expertise of outdoor adventure from the NOC will be a great benefit to guests. And with all the new outdoor activities, the great relationship between The North Face and the NOC makes this a very exciting time."
