Oros Completes Portland Relocation; Announces Organization Growth

September 24, 2019

OROS, the brand behind SOLARCORE - a ground-breaking insulation that incorporates aerogel, the least conductive material known to humankind - is pleased to announce it has finalized its move into the brand’s new Portland-based headquarters since relocating from Cincinnati, Ohio. Along with the move, OROS has added roles to the product development team.

Located at 307 SE Hawthorne Blvd in Portland’s growing Southeast neighborhood, the 5,400 square foot space will accommodate OROS’ planned personnel growth and expand its in-house material science innovation capabilities.

Jeff Nash heads up product innovation at OROS as Chief Technology Officer and VP of Product. Nash has 20 years of experience in technical material innovation with industry leading brands including The North Face and Black Diamond Equipment.

OROS’ goal from a product and technology perspective is to create a long sleeve shirt you can wear in sub-freezing temperatures and still stay warm. “To bring our vision to life, we needed to hire someone who could lead OROS’ technology initiative and help create future generations of our NASA-inspired tech,” says Markesbery. “Having previously run The North Face’s Innovation and Materials teams, Jeff is a perfect fit for the role.”
