Clam Outdoors Industrial & Commercial
ROGERS, MINNESOTA– Clam Outdoors is the world leader in ice house sales; in fact, many credit the Minnesota company with revolutionizing the sport of ice fishing. Since its humble beginnings 35 years ago in founder Dave Genz’s garage, the company has grown beyond even the wildest expectations. “At first, my wife, Patsy, sewed them on her machine,’’ said Genz, “We made five that first year, then 20 the next and 80 the third year.’’ Annual sales for Clam Outdoors now number in the tens of thousands and a product offering that spans 750-plus products. When the time came to expand, Clam’s leadership approached Rogers design-build general contractor Kinghorn Construction. Kinghorn partnered with Fabcon Precast to erect the150,000 square foot facility that Clam now calls home. “Our panels were a perfect fit for Clam’s world headquarters” says Fabcon Sales Engineer, Aaron Gordon. “Their plan called for 24 dock doors of varying sizes and 12 future dock doors for future expansion. Our 8ft panels make it a lot easier to execute that particular feature. And because they were so pressed for space, Clam had a pretty aggressive timeline. We had their new home enclosed within 13 days of the footings being completed.” As Clam continues its success story, Fabcon will be a part of it. Their current site has the potential for an additional 50,000 square feet of expansion. Thanks to the modular aspects of Fabcon’s panels, expanding that footprint will be quick and nondisruptive. We look forward to it.
