Tailwind Nutrition Named 2017 Colorado Company to Watch
Durango, CO – June 23, 2017 – Endurance Fuel manufacturer, Tailwind Nutrition, is excited to announce they have been named a Colorado Company to Watch in 2017. This prestigious award is given to growing companies based in Colorado that exhibit drive, influence and excellence in their business, as well as develop valuable products and services, create quality jobs and enrich their communities.
Founded by Jeff and Jenny Vierling of Durango, CO, Tailwind Nutrition is an endurance drink mix that can be used as a sole fuel source by athletes during exercise supplying energy, electrolytes, and hydration in a simple form that is easy to digest and has a clean, mild taste. Since 2012 when they launched the company from their home kitchen, the brand has seen unparalled growth. To date, Tailwind Nutrition has kept their family business environment, opened a manufacturing and warehouse facility in Bayfield, CO, grown distribution to over 600 stores and is available worldwide through international partners.
“Being based in Durango, CO has played an important role in how we’ve evolved as a company from product development and testing, to making the decision to manufacture and produce Tailwind Nutrition in our community instead of outsourcing,” states Jenny Vierling of Tailwind Nutrition. “We are thrilled to be included in this year’s Colorado Companies to Watch which recognizes the role that companies such as ours plays in driving economic growth and supporting our local communities.
Colorado Companies to Watch strives to acknowledge those companies that are the driving forces in the state by recognizing not only growth, but the true impact and influence of the organization.
