The world’s second largest bicycle component manufacturer was founded just a few blocks away from the new HQ.

“This new facility was designed to be open, naturally lit and conducive to creative development and communication,” said SRAM President Stan Day. Adding, “We’re just blocks from our founding location where it all started in 1987, so there is some history for us here. This was a long anticipated move and we’re incredibly excited to be here.”

1KFulton will also serve as HQ for World Bicycle Relief as well as the SRAM Cycling Fund.
