Fluid Kayaks’ new distribution setup for the USA
Fluid Kayaks are happy to announce their new distribution setup for the USA from 2008.
They now have a huge warehousing company on board with depots in the East and West. The warehousing company will receive all the containers sent to the USA, store the kayaks, and dispatch them to dealers. Professional service and prompt delivery will be the name of the game.
All Fluid’s dealers from the past 3 years will still be selling their kayaks, and they are signing up a bunch more dealers right now. So chances are good that their kayaks will be available near you wherever you are in the States. If your local dealer is not carrying Fluid kayaks yet, make sure they contact Fluid soon.
The first container to the USA for 2008 is leaving Fluid’s factory in South Africa during January. Depending on shipping time, customs and other logistical issues, the first kayaks should be in stores sometime in February. Following the first container will be quite a few more containers to both depots to keep stock levels up.
The first container carries the following models: M Nemesis, S-M-L Flirts, S-M-L Spices, S-M-L-E Solos, Vaya, and a few of the first M Elements as well. The second container will add the S and L Nemesis to the mix.
Fluid Kayaks also have an exciting new addition to their sales force: Gavin Rains will be taking care of all their rep work in the USA. For those who don’t know him yet, Gavin managed Alabama Small Boats for the past 5 years, which also happens to be one of Fluid’s oldest dealers in the USA. Which means Gavin knows the Fluid range well, making him the perfect candidate to help build Fluid’s presence in the States. Gavin starting hitting the road in early January, not only with Fluid stuff but also a couple of other brands that he will be representing, so keep your eyes open for him and his demo fleet at events and festivals throughout the country.
