Lake Forest, CA June 24, 2009 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Scorpion Sports Inc., the company which launched the ScorpionExo brand of helmets just over 5 years ago, continues its dealer-direct business model. Despite some recent confusion in the marketplace, SSI will continue aggressively selling the popular ScorpionExo® brand of helmets and the exclusive line of ExoWear™ technical riding apparel.
Tucker Rocky was recently granted co-distribution rights for the ScorpionExo® helmet collection only in a deal negotiated by Scorpion’s parent company, Kido Sports of S. Korea. “Scorpion Sports and its team of independent Factory sales reps remains the only factory-owned source for ScorpionExo® products,” explains company president, Rick Miller. The Scorpion Sports facilities in California and Kentucky remain the home of the exclusive ExoWear™ collection as well as supplying customer service support, R&D, advertising and public relations for the well recognized brand. The message is “Buy direct.”
“Co-distribution was never part of the original business plan, but difficult economic times create strange alliances,” adds VP Sales & Marketing Eric Anderson. “Note this alliance is between our parent company and Tucker Rocky, not Scorpion Sports. Contrary to the rumors, Scorpion Sports is not getting out of the helmet business! No way! No how!”
“Scorpion Sports and its team of Factory Sales Reps remains the only single source for all ScorpionExo® products,” explains company president Rick Miller. The Scorpion Sports facilities in California and Kentucky remain the home of the exclusive ExoWear™ collection, customer service support, regional warehouses, R&D, advertising and public relations for the brand.
“Scorpion is here to stay,” concludes Miller. “We are the heart and home of the Scorpion brand.”
