The Box exists by reinvestment into the Union brand, cutting out all middlemen and focusing solely on offering the best product possible across the board. Union is THE only conventional binding supplier who owns and operates its own production facility. A dedicated collective of binding designers, production experts and passionate snowboarders - the group at the Box can design, build and test prototypes all within an 8-hour work day.

Forged Carbon has always been produced inhouse, because during it's inception, there were no outside vendors capable of offering help. So Union purchased a used forging press, and by trial and error, figured out how to apply it to binding parts. That was years ago, and with recent investment into our all new forging press (specifically built for Forged Carbon production), we are exicted to show the world the next generation of this futuristic material.
