Steamboat, Colo. – (Nov. 19, 2010) – Point6, designer and manufacturer of premium merino wool performance socks, has added five distributors to its European sales force. Along with partners in Italy, Germany, and Canada, Point6 has brought Austria, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom (including Ireland) to grow its international retail channels. Each distribution partner brings considerable experience and industry-leading service to the outdoor, ski, and lifestyle markets throughout Europe.
Point6 has hired Sport Pichler (Austria), Fritigsagenten A/S (Denmark), Uhrweder Sport (Norway), Uhrweder Sport (Sweden) and TKC Sales (United Kingdom and Ireland). With complementary brand portfolios, these new distribution partners allow Point6 to align with strong performing brands across its target markets.
Retailers have been enthusiastic about Point6’s entry to the European market citing founders’ Peter and Patty Duke’s strong reputation as merino wool pioneers and leaders.
