SEATTLE, U.S.A. – Cascade Designs, Inc., the Seattle-based industry leader in the design and manufacture of premier outdoor equipment, is proud to bestow its 2008 Rep Group of the Year award to West Bay Trading of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The award recognizes the West Bay Trading team for their efforts propelling strong sales growth for the company's flagship outdoor brands: Therm-a-Rest®, MSR®, SealLine®, Platypus® and Tracks®.

The West Bay Trading team, including Thomas Meier, Walt Mayer and Geri Mayer, has been representing Cascade Designs's brands for over 25 years. This award recognizes their creativity and can-do attitude in providing exceptional communication and service to Cascade Designs's retailers in the U.S. Great Lakes region (Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio). As a result of their hard work and dedication, the majority of their dealer base grew sales of Cascade Designs's products in 2008 despite a challenging economic climate.

“For over twenty-five years, Cascade Designs has retained our interest, enthusiasm and loyalty—as well as that of our dealers—through a dedication to innovation, resulting in new products that ultimately advance the outdoor experience of the consumer,” commented Walt Mayer of West Bay Trading. “Our success is principally due to those highly anticipated new products and effective merchandising materials, but also to our hands-on communication style, quick response-time to retailer needs and requests and our commitment to developing long-lasting relationships with retailers.”

The Cascade Designs Rep Group of the Year award is given annually at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City, Utah.
