Union Binding Company was founded in Italy in 2005 by former Northwave and Drake employees Martino Fumagalli and George Kleckner. With the goal of creating high-quality, durable bindings that would provide snowboarders with the performance and reliability they needed to ride at their best, Union had a simple premise - STRONGER.
Over 15 years later, Union has become one of the leading brands in the snowboarding industry and is known for its innovative designs, high-quality construction, and commitment to sustainability. The company is headquartered in Seattle, Washington and continues to be at the forefront of the snowboarding industry, working closely with professional riders and using the latest technology to create bindings that meet the demands of riders at all levels.
Based in Colico, Italy, Union Snowboard Bindings are designed and manufactured in THE BOX, a state of the art facility that allows Union to research, design, prototype and build bindings in a vertically integrated production facility. The full-cycle production facility allows Union to control the manufacturing process and ensure the highest standards of quality are maintained.
Maintaining their commitment to the environment, THE BOX is powered by 100% renewable energy.
The Union Bindings team is a collective of individuals that comes together to achieve a common goal - to build the best snowboard bindings on earth. From the streets to Alaska, Union's global team boasts over 100 riders including Travis Rice, Torstein Horgmo, Jamie Anderson, Jess Kimura, Kevin Backstrom, Arthur Longo, Miles Fallon and more.
