Non-essential features in their high performance gear
A young outdoor industry company with high growth, Hyperlite Mountain Gear is challenging the status quo. Manufacturing their products at an 1880’s era mill in Biddeford, Hyperlite is competing with entrenched brands producing overseas with lower costs and using lower-tech materials. The company is driven to produce a premium product despite these constraints and prides itself on their minimalist high performance gear. The MTAF 2.0 award is allowing Hyperlite to focus on efficiency and automation to accelerate production growth and increase market share. The initial project has already allowed for increased fabric yield and resource planning.
