Respect Your Universe has opened its Product Creation office at 818 N. Russell Street in Portland, Oregon. The office will house product merchandising, design, development and sourcing functions as well as various administrative positions.

The Pacific Northwest, and Portland in particular, has a long tradition within the sport of MMA. As a talent leader in the sports apparel industry, it is a natural destination for RYU's Product Creation office to grow the RYU brand and keep the RYU apparel and equipment line at the forefront of design.

CEO Chris Martens:
"One of the key initiatives of the city is to make Portland the capital of the athletic sport industry and RYU would benefit by the various programs and resources that are being made available to support this initiative."

COO Erick Siffert:
"Portland is known as a leading city in the global sports industry and is something we felt was important for the long term success of RYU. We want to leverage the creative and innovative talent in a market where dozens of athletic brands including NIKE and ADIDAS call home."

Respect Your Universe, Inc. - RYU is a premium performance apparel and equipment company rooted in and inspired by Mixed Martial Arts.
