Hydro FlaskFounded in Bend in 2009, Hydro Flask is a beloved local brand. If you’re from Bend, chances are, you have a Hydro Flask in your car, on your desk or in your pack (or all three!). The company has blossomed from humble beginnings into an award-winning leader in high-performance, insulated stainless steel beverage and food flasks. And much of that time, the company has been headquartered in NorthWest Crossing.

Late last year, the company moved just down the street to their brand new facility in NWX. The modern 12,000-square foot building not only better accommodates their growing team, but also incorporates a variety of features including a hydration station, bike corral and showers for post-lunch exercise outings. In addition, team members have access to beverage taps and specialty coffee equipment featuring Hydro Flask customers’ microbrews, kombucha, and roasted coffee. With panoramic view windows and roll-up doors facing the Cascades, the space embodies Hydro Flask’s fun and adventure-oriented brand culture.

NorthWest Crossing seems to be the perfect home base for this growing company and its team. And we’re grateful to Hydro Flask for saving us from lukewarm. Cheers!
