Burton Headquarters Craig’s R&D Facility + Burton Museum – An Inside Look

By - October 8th, 2012

Renowned as the godfather of freestyle snowboarding, Craig Kelly rode for Burton Snowboards for most of his career. Burton wanted to honor Kelly by naming their R&D facility in Burlington, Vermont after him, simply calling it Craig’s. Transworld Business took a tour of the massive 10,000-square-foot facility, giving us an inside look at the state-of-the-art compound where the Burton products are prototyped and tested. Having spent 18 years at the famed snowboard company, Todd Kohlman is the Burton Archivist, and he guided them through the different sections of the R&D space. In addition, Kohlman gave a tour of the Burton historical museum, which chronicles the products and prototypes from its inception in 1977. Check out the images and videos by scrolling down below.
