Under Armour opens footwear innovation hub in Portland
Under Armour unveiled on Thursday a new global performance innovation center in Portland, Oregon at the refurbished Duniway Park in Southwest Portland.
The Under Armour Portland office (UA PDX) is designed to condense and accelerate the footwear and apparel design process by connecting designers and developers with an innovation team and real-time athlete performance analytics.
The 70,000-square-foot hub also features a biomechanics lab and performance training center for athlete testing, and serves as a home for design, development and innovation teams that are creating the next generation of basketball, running, training, golf, sportstyle, and outdoor footwear.
"Footwear is a key driver of our long-term growth and success," said Peter Ruppe, Sr. Vice President for Footwear at Under Armour. "We've established a strong foundation, and now UA PDX represents a considerable leap forward towards creating leading performance footwear designed to make athletes better."
In addition to opening the UA PDX office, Under Armour refurbished and updated sports fields, running tracks and trails at Lents and Duniway Parks in downtown Portland.
