Boulder, Colo., May 15th, 2019 - 2018 proved to be one heck of a year for fast-growing, Boulder-based company, The Pro's Closet. The world's top resource for quality pre-owned cycling gear recorded huge growth gains, drastically increased warehouse space to 25,000 square-feet with the addition of a 6,500 square-foot facility in nearby Westminster, CO and put $11.5 million in funding (raised in 2017) to work to create a stronger infrastructure and more staffing.

While 2018 was big a year, the company is already on track to have a dramatically bigger 2019 — and they're on the hunt for quality employees to be a part of the exciting growth.

TPC's founder and CEO, Nick Martin, says about the incredible results: "We're so fortunate to be in such a strong growth position but that brings hurdles of its own. While it's exciting to see all the numbers going in the right direction, and to feel the energy, enthusiasm, and dedication of the entire team, we are facing the challenge of not being able to hire fast enough. Of course, this is a good problem to have, but it also artificially limits our potential."

In 2018, after adding 21 new jobs, The Pro's Closet staff totaled in at 50 employees. During the first quarter of 2019, the company hired an additional 11 employees and is currently looking to fill 10 open positions across all departments.

The company's focus on repurposing and finding value in pre-owned bikes and cycling gear has spawned partnerships with some of the biking industry's biggest manufacturers, driving fast growth and the constant need to hire.

Much of the company's fast growth is inspired by the The Pro's Closet's ability to partner with some of the largest cycling manufacturers in the world including Santa Cruz, Orbea, Niner, Zipp, Cannondale,and many others while developing a trade-in program made up of 5,000 bike shops via QBP, the largest bike parts distributor in America. The recently announced trade-in program with REI is another significant piece of TPC's growth. These strategic alliances liquidate overstock and demo fleet bikes and provide a trusted platform for a healthy secondary market to support the primary cycling sales market. In 2019, fifty percent of all TPC purchased inventory came from those industry manufacturing sources.

The opportunity to work on and with top-of-the-line bikes made by some of the most respected manufacturers in the industry is just one of the enticing perks employees of The Pro's Closet will enjoy. TPC employees also gain health and life insurance packages, ownership in the company via stock option grants, access to the best tools and technology available in the cycling industry, and a unique community-oriented culture that includes frequent team building activities, competitive pay and weekly group rides.
