When CEO Jeff Byers and COO Erica Good were looking to move Amp Human out of the bustle of Southern California, the decision was as much personal as it was geared towards growing the young business. Their love for the outdoor sports that Utah so abundantly offers was a huge factor, as was the ability to spend more quality time with their family and friends. Combine that with the close proximity to Olympians, professionals and folks who hope to get the most out of the outdoors, and they knew the Wasatch would be the place for them.
Since moving to Park City in July of 2018, the Amp Human team has been greeted with successful partnerships and incredible support from the local community. Athletes who are excited for a new brand and product that will help them get the most out of their sport, as well as local companies who see the potential in this revolutionary technology and are eager to get on board.
“Moving to Park City is one of the best things we could have done for Amp Human. Utah feels tailor-made to companies that serve athletes as ours does and the infrastructure and talent are fantastic. We feel very fortunate to combine life in a mountain town with a place that’s great for our business.” – Erica
“Our product helps athletes of all kinds to do more of what they love in the outdoors. Moving here puts us closer in touch with our customer base and with a tremendous network of strong athletes and other outdoor brands with which to collaborate.” – Jeff
Two of Amp Human’s leading values are ‘grit’ and ‘integrity’. This means grinding hard both in and out of the office, and always choosing to do the right thing over the easy thing, be that within the staff or the community at large. They are dedicated to supporting local efforts which maintain Utah as a desirable place to both live and adventure, and they believe in aligning with other brands that do the same.
As the company grows, Amp Human will remain a leader in creating products that maximize the capabilities of athletes, while always making time to get out on the hill and remember why they moved to this rich land of recreation.
