President's Letter: Winter 2015

29 December 2015

The Rustbelt was once the cradle of America's industrial strength, spanning from Pennsylvania to Minnesota. As globalization gave way to alternative manufacturing options for companies, that strength began to erode away throughout the 20th century. In recent years, many of the cities within the Rustbelt have experienced a renaissance, proving that the integrity and might that once distinguished this region was not just a moment in history, but instead a fundamental quality of American industry.

At Urge, we are inspired by this renaissance period. We hope to add our two cents through our passion for unique designs that appeal to people's diverse interests. Although we began in 2015 with a focus on "gearheads," we continue to expand to engage a larger community.

The new year will bring fresh opportunities and exciting challenges. Read more >>
