OGC to Distribute Thule in Canada

Published August 25, 2009

SEYMOUR, CT (BRAIN)—Thule has entered into an agreement with Outdoor Gear Canada (OGC) to distribute both Thule and SportRack branded products to the Canadian market.

This agreement will give Thule and SportRack dealers the flexibility to buy direct from Thule or from OGC. OGC will distribute these products from both its Montreal and Vancouver warehouses.

"We are very proud and pleased to add Thule and Sportrack to our program. Thule is the unquestioned market leader in this very important category and they've earned that leadership over many years of outstanding innovation and manufacturing,” said David Bowman, president of Outdoor Gear Canada.

Tripp Wyckoff, Thule’s vice president of sales, service and marketing said, “Outdoor Gear is the premier distributor in the Canadian market. Both the Thule and SportRack brands will complement the other world-class brands OGC represents. With OGC’s Vancouver warehouse we are able to service the Western Canadian retailers better than in the past.”

OGC will begin taking orders for Thule and SportRack products at the BTAC show in September.
