Burton Snowboards installed a PMNG membrane nitrogen generator in their rapid prototyping department. Prototype snowboards can be produced within a very short time frame allowing product to get on the slopes that much faster. Burton’s staff were impressed with how easy the unit was to install and operate. The unit has been up and running since 2007.
Burton Snowboards, located in Burlington, Vermont was one of the first snowboard companies in the world, Burton Snowboards Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets a full line of snowboarding equipment, clothing, and related accessories. Although snowboarding did not become a well-recognized sport until the early 1990s, Burton began manufacturing snowboards and bindings in 1977, when the company’s founder started making his own boards in a borrowed woodworking shop in Stratton, Vermont. From these modest origins, Burton developed into a flourishing enterprise with offices in Europe and Japan that served customers in 27 countries. Recognized as an industry pioneer, Burton controlled roughly 40 percent of the U.S. snowboarding market during the late 1990s, more than any other company in the world. Burton has over 600 employees.
