Quiksilver's Rossignol chooses new HQ in Isere, France

Sep '05
Surf clothing cataloger Quiksilver Inc announced that its Rossignol subsidiary has selected the Centr'Alp 2 site near Voiron in Isere, France to build Rossignol's new worldwide headquarters (HQ). The inauguration is scheduled for the end of 2007 coinciding with celebrations of Rossignol's 100-year anniversary.

The choice of a new corporate headquarters (HQ) in the Voiron region meets the dual goal of giving Rossignol employees optimal working conditions in order to boost future growth while providing a long-term future for the company's presence in its historical home in the French Alps.

In bringing together all company departments, which are currently fragmented over many sites, into a single 15-acre campus, Rossignol aims to promote synergies and creativity among staff by offering an environment conducive to better internal communication.

Jean-Francois Gautier, President of Skis Rossignol SA stated that the choice of Centr'Alp 2 for their worldwide head office is consistent with the vision I share with Bernard Mariette for the group's new mission in the outdoor and winter sports world. It is essential that they enable local employees and craftsmen to pursue their work under the best conditions possible, and they are very encouraged by the proposal put forward by the Voiron region.

The choice of location is also in line with the strategy that Quiksilver has always followed--to develop its brands as near as possible to the natural environment they are linked to. Quiksilver's European headquarters are located at St. Jean de Luz in France's surf region on the Atlantic coast, the location for Rossignol's new American headquarters is planned for Park City in prime Utah ski country, while Rossignol's worldwide head office will be located in the heart of the Alps.
