For immediate release:

Seymour, Conn., March 15, 2016 –Subaru of America will now offer a selection of Thule carrier and rack products to their customers through the Subaru Genuine Accessories program. Select Thule branded roof-mounted crossbars, cargo boxes, bike, watersport and snowsport carriers, as well as a hitch mounted bike carrier, will all be available for purchase at all of Subaru’s dealerships throughout the United States.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Subaru,” said Thule Director of OE Sales and Service, Tom Chimenti. “By offering Thule branded products through Subaru’s retailer network, customers will have the ability to personalize their vehicles at the time of purchase to complement their active lifestyle.”

Many Subaru owners have a strong commitment to outdoor activities that require the use of roof and hitch mounted carriers, making the availability of Thule products at Subaru dealerships an incentive to stay active. From carrying their skis and snowboards, to their kayaks and bikes, Subaru owners that have a passion for the outdoors will have direct access to Thule’s products at the point of purchase of their vehicle. In addition to Subaru owners, consumers will be able to purchase select Thule products directly from their local dealership as well.
