Deuter USA Announces Ortovox USA Distribution Partnership

Longmont, CO (June 29, 2012) – Deuter USA announced today the integration of Ortovox USA’s distribution, fulfillment, sales and marketing efforts into their Longmont, Colorado facility and staff beginning July 1, 2012.

The following sales rep agencies will represent both Deuter and Ortovox:

- Pinnacle Sales: Northwest

- Sterling & CO: CA, NV

- KNS Reps: Rocky Mountain

“It’s an exciting time for Deuter and Ortovox in the US right now and it is allowing us to combine efforts, scale and resources to grow both brands,” says Bill Hartrampf, Deuter USA’s President. “We are creating a combined strategy and plan in all organizational and operational aspects to not only promote, but leverage our resources and brands in every season.

“We believe this is a big opportunity to sell the technical side of Deuter and we look forward to strong sales of the Ortovox brand,” says Christian Mason, Director of Sales for Deuter USA. “We’ll build a foundation for Ortovox like we did for Deuter - brick by brick starting with core, technical product and continuing the growth.”

The Ortovox acquisition by Schwan-Stabilo, Deuter USA’s parent company, occurred July 1, 2011. Marcus Peterson, former CEO of Ortovox USA will become the Ortovox Brand and Product Specialist for Deuter USA.
