SEATTLE, Wash. – Cascade Designs, a Seattle-based manufacturer of premier backpacking and recreation products, is proud to announce Hanco Imports as 2007 Rep Group of the Year in recognition of their contributions to last year's success in the territory of Alaska. The award was given to Hanco's Gus Hanson and Brian Erickson at Winter Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City, Utah. Hanco's efforts propelled strong sales growth for the company's flagship outdoor brands: Therm-a-Rest®, MSR®, SealLine®, Platypus® and Tracks®.

Hanco Imports, led by Gus Hanson, has been representing Cascade Designs's brands for almost 20 years. The Rep Group of the Year distinction recognizes their outstanding service to longtime customers and relationship-building success with new, non-traditional retail outlets that began carrying Cascade Designs's quality outdoor gear.

“The fact that Hanco has grown sales considerably in a relatively small territory – one they've been working for many years – is a great testament to their dedication and passion for their work,” said Bill Conradt, Director of Sales for North America. “That passion has translated into success for their dealers and for the folks getting out there and enjoying all the outdoor recreational opportunities in Alaska.”

The Cascade Designs Rep Group of the Year is awarded annually at the Winter Outdoor Retailer Show, recognizing the outstanding efforts of sales teams.
