BATALEON and LOBSTER snowboard production back to Europe. Two seasons ago they made all their snowboards at the ELAN factory, but due to closure of that facility they were forced to move 50% of their snowboard production to Asia.
“It’s been a tough two seasons and moving production isn’t to be
taken lightly. It feels very good to have all our snowboards made in
Austria again and have a solid long term production partner that has the
same expectations on service, quality and progression as we do. We know
the crew at CAPiTA MFG very well, and know that they really care about
snowboarding and their new structure gives us a lot of confidence,” says
Dennis Dusseldorp - Director at LowPressureStudio
Despite the fact that 50% of the models have been sampled in
Asia, LowPressureStudio decided that their serial production will be
100% European made at CAPiTA MFG.
“Bataleon and Lobster are interesting and unafraid. We recognize
their creative contributions to snowboarding, and look forward to
building world class snowboards for them in the years ahead.” - Blue
