Deuter USA has experienced very healthy growth during the last year, expanding from a very tiny group of 10 retail accounts as of April 1, 2001 to 135 retail accounts as of March 15, 2002, according to company president Patry Loomis. Loomis expects to add 20 more accounts by June 1. Of the 135 total accounts, 47 are bike accounts established since the Interbike Show in October 2001. Because of the growth, Deuter USA has expanded its national sales rep force to 15, eight of which are bike-specific reps, and five that are outdoor and bike combined. Deuter has plans to continue to expand this list. For more information, go to www.deuterusa.com
