Homegrown Trailers, a manufacturer, dealer, and renter of artisan, sustainable travel trailers, has just completed a major move of its operations from Woodinville to Kirkland. The company’s new home will be located near the downtown core in the Kirkland Commerce Center. Company representatives said that the move is designed to increase production levels, gain a more customer-friendly showroom and rental space, and expand its public visibility.

The company’s first year of operations resulted in it outgrowing its original location, where it began in February 2016. During the past year, the company achieved a number of important milestones, including refining its product design; securing certifications, licenses, and other regulatory requirements; manufacturing numerous trailers for sale nationally; renting dozens of trailers in the Puget Sound area; expanding market awareness via various channels; and assembling a staff.

“Due to the hard work of the Homegrown Trailers team, plus the market’s amazing reception to our unique trailers, we are expanding quickly,” said Corey Weathers, co-founder and CEO of Homegrown Trailers. “Our new Kirkland facility represents a bold new future for the company and positions us for a banner year in 2017.”

The new 6,597 square foot facility, located at at 511 6th Street S in Kirkland, is adjacent to Google’s Kirkland campus and Chainline Brewery.

“Homegrown Trailers is thrilled to join the dynamic Kirkland business community,” said Eric Gertsman, co-founder and chief marketing officer of the company. “We are also encouraged that our new facility is so close to the main Interstate-405 transportation corridor so that our customers can reach us easy and directly head out on their Pacific Northwest adventures.”
