Striker Headquarters has moved! The company is still located in beautiful Hudson, Wisconsin, on the border of Minnesota and Wisconsin. About 5 minutes away from our old building, stands our new facility at 76,000 square feet. We are now located right off Interstate 94, with 42,000 cars driving by each day in view of Striker's new home.
Striker moved to Hudson, WI in 2011. Although the old space was sufficient for the company back then, Striker soon outgrew the space with added team members and product. Between the sharing of offices and limited space in the warehouse, Striker needed an upgrade in building size. So, we started from scratch!
The groundbreaking ceremony was March 29, 2022. Patiently waiting all summer long, Striker employees finally moved into the new facility on September 30th 2022. There was no lack of smiling employees that day!
All employees now have their very own workspace. There are currently 34 desks for Striker employees, all being sit-stand desks. There are 3 different collaboration areas – a large conference room, small conference room, and a breakout area. The office area consists of 20 cubes and 13 offices surrounding the exterior. It might seem like there are quite a few open offices and cubes right now, but with the rapid growth of Striker year after year, the real question is not if the space will get filled, but how soon.
Compared to our previous space, the new warehouse is massive! It is sitting at 63,000 sq ft, where our old one was only 10,000 sq ft. There are 3,000 pallet locations at our new building, compared to 350 at the old location. Our new warehouse features a 28’ clearance ceiling height and 3 dock doors to ship and receive containers, compared to the 1 dock door at the old building.
Room to Grow
The upper level of the new building is home to loads of potential. This 6,000 sq ft level will be used for large events, meetings, and will eventually be built out for our product development team and additional desk space when needed.
We now have our very own Striker Retail Store. Our fishing apparel is available for try on and purchase from inside our new headquarters. We also have some Striker store exclusive products that you can’t get anywhere else. If you’re lucky, we’ll even give you a tour of the new building!
The retail store will be open Monday through Friday from 9am – 5pm, located at 651 Commerce Drive, Hudson, WI 54016.
Statement from Striker’s President
Striker has grown significantly in recent years and our employees have been instrumental in that growth. Our new building will better accommodate growing staff and increased inventory. State-of-the-art technology and design integrated into the building will enable our team to deliver the best possible products to our customers. I truly appreciate all of our loyal customers over the years. If you are ever in the area, please stop by and say hi. – Craig Poucher
