LiquidSky announces opening of LiquidSky East in DeLand, Florida
Skydiving suit designer and manufacturer, LiquidSky Inc, is expanding production with a new location in DeLand, Florida and will be open for business in January! Julio Ruiz, owner and founder of LiquidSky Inc, has been thinking about an expansion to the East coast for awhile, and after a visit to DeLand last weekend, he put his plans in motion.
“LiquidSky began in Puerto Rico in 2004 and moved to Florida in 2007 with the goal of branching out in the action sports industry. In 2011 the company decides to cross the country and settle in Los Angeles where Action Sports are very popular,” Ruiz said. “LiquidSky always thought about reopening the East coast shop and now is the perfect time and DeLand is the place to be”.
There are many benefits to a company being bicoastal and one of the immediate advantages for LiquidSky customers will be a faster production and shipping time for suits, plus the ability to be measured and plan a custom design with onsite employees – a huge win for jumpers at such a busy Drop Zone like Skydive DeLand.
“By having another production site we aim to cut our production time and store walk-ins will have the option of getting their suit ready in super rush time of only one or two weeks by paying an extra fee,” Ruiz continued.
In addition to ordering and being measured for jumpsuits, skydivers local to DeLand and the surrounding areas will also benefit from being able to see and feel the different types of suits that LiquidSky offers and purchase LiquidSky shirts and hats right off the rack, including a soon to be released women’s bikini line.
To begin, the LiquidSky offices will share space with Sky Systems USA at 1241 Produce Alley in DeLand, and plan to be open for business by the first of the year.
“We really appreciate Doug (Park, owner of Sky Systems USA) inviting us to share his shop while we find our more permanent home in DeLand,” Ruiz said. “The skydiving family is so awesome and everyone we’ve talked to has offered to help and is making us feel so welcome”.
A Grand Opening date will be announced soon – keep an eye out because this is one opening you’ll not want to miss!
