As the scene for outdoor sports and activities continues to grow in Northwest Arkansas, the region is alluring to some big outdoor manufacturers. Most recently, 50-year-old company Eddyline Kayaks announced plans to make the move.
- Funding: With a minority growth investment from a Bentonville investment fund, Eddyline has plans for a distribution center here in NWA sometime this calendar year, which will be a stepping stone for future dealers in the area.
- Marketplace: Eddyline manufactures some of the highest quality lightweight kayaks all from its headquarters in Washington. With 150 store locations, the closest one to NWA is currently in Kansas. By moving to NWA, it will allow Eddyline "to support the distribution needs of our existing and future dealer partners".
