Trust Mervin Manufacturing
Mervin Manufacturing home of Lib Tech, GNU, Roxy and Bent Metal Binding Works is a leading designer and manufacturer of snowboarding, skiing, surfing and skateboarding products built at the world’s most environMENTAL factory by people who ride them. Mervin Manufacturing was founded by snowboarders Mike Olson and Pete Saari in 1977. In an industry where virtually every other snowboard, ski, skateboard, and surfboard company has moved production to China or offshore, Mervin is the longest running and last major board building factory in the USA. Based out of Carlsborg, Washington, between the rugged Olympic and Cascade Mountain Ranges, Mervin is a direct link between riding and manufacturing.
BITCHIN’ BOARD BUILDERS
We build snowboards, skis, skateboards and surfboards, No really… that is what we do. We don’t order them from China or anywhere else and send someone to go check and see how they turned out. We physically hand build them right here at home in the USA. We buy the toughest, lightest, strongest, most environmental materials; many of which aren’t meant for snowboards or used by anyone else for what we use them for. We mill, cut, glue, sand, sublimate, and flame-treat them into precise fitting puzzle pieces. We wet laminate them with our own formula of epoxy and put them in presses and formblocks we build ourselves then cure them for a specific time at multiple set temperatures, each unique model having its own set of rules. We deflash them, grind them, sand them, Scotch-briteTM them, drill them, scrape them, polish them, wax them, grade them, rework them if we need to, bag them, carry them over to shipping on the forklift, put them in their bins, and then ship them to you. We have been doing this every day for three decades. We build snowboards.
