LeoVince USA & Tucker Rocky Distributing Announce New Strategic Alliance

RICHMOND, CA – November 3, 2009 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – LeoVince USA announces that Tucker Rocky Distributing will now be its selected aftermarket distributor and that LeoVince USA will expand its dealer direct sales operations. Until recently, LeoVince had utilized three large aftermarket distributors.

LeoVince“Tucker Rocky has shown that they are willing to embrace unique business models such as working with a manufacturer that is also a distributor and make it successful for both parties,” states Tim Calhoun E.V.P. of LeoVince USA. The combination of T/R’s highly motivated sales force and their ability to stock fast-moving products in depth and ship quickly is a big benefit to dealers. Dealers will also benefit knowing they can call LeoVince direct and we’ll have in stock a very broad product line of hard-to-find models, high-end racing systems and everything in-between. I believe there are great synergies between our companies and we are very excited to reintroduce our dealer sales model and offer our industry leading customer service.”

Tim continues, “I would like to thank both Western Power Sports and Parts Unlimited for their representation of the LeoVince and Sito brand family of products. I would like to especially thank the inside and outside sales representatives of these organizations for their time and dedication to our brand. For the last 56 years Sito Gruppo Industriale, LeoVince’s parent company, has primarily self distributed our products worldwide. This change in US distribution is primarily being made to bring our operations into alignment with our global strategy. We will be announcing many exciting things in the coming weeks and are well positioned to continue our market share and sales growth for 2010.”
