A16 & Quest Expands East Coast Accessories Distribution

Adventure 16’s Wholesale Distribution Division is pleased to announce that its 3PL partner, Quest Distribution in Louisville Kentucky, is now shipping Nalgene as well as Klean Kanteen and Nathan products to A16’s Midwest and East Coast Dealers.

Louisville is a UPS hub city and is well positioned to provide A16 Dealers with improved delivery time on Nalgene and a growing number of other popular and fast-turning outdoor accessories. In some cases, it will speed delivery by up to three days. A16's President John D. Mead had this to say about the new partnership, “We're delighted to have the Louisville distribution facility up and running. Quest's owner Don Burch is an experienced third party logistics distributor. This combined with the stellar reputation of both Don and his company make them the ideal choice. As a long time specialty shop owner and the Outdoor Industry Retail Leader of the Year in 2002, he understands the unique needs of specialty outdoor retailers. We're happy to be better serving our customers in that neck of the woods."

Adventure 16 was founded by a Boy Scout Explorer Post in 1962. It is an employee owned company operating seven high-end specialty mountain shops in Southern California and a wholesale distribution business providing outdoor accessories and climbing equipment to over 1,500 dealers throughout the world.
