Startup outdoor company purchasing Sidney facility

SIDNEY, Neb. - A new sporting goods company is going to be operating out of Sidney. Highby Outdoors is finalizing a purchase of a facility on Greenwood Road that currently houses Anderson Forest Products, a pallet and shipping container company already operating out of the building. Anderson Forest Products will be part of the purchase and will be maintained in a portion of the facility.

The startup business is looking to initially gain market through online sales and plans to eventually move into a retail footprint. The company will offer items such as shooting and fishing accessories, camping gear, ammunition, and handguns.

The Sidney City Council agreed Tuesday to fund the business a total of $500,000 in $100,000 a year increments. In return, the business must create 25 new jobs. Highby Outdoors will be investing about $5 million in startup costs, building renovations, and employee payroll.
