Westcomb is expanding their reach into the Province of Quebec. The Canadian designer and manufacturer of performance-driven outerwear signed a new sales agency to build new relationships with and drive sales at area retailers.

Westcomb tapped experienced sales representative Suzie Duchesneau to further grow the brand’s presence at Quebec retailers. With a history of developing strong relationships with key accounts Suzie delivers value for retailers through a track record of quality service. The agency also manages accounts in Quebec for Keen Footwear, Tasc Performance Apparel, Vibram FiveFingers and KAVU Clothing & Gear.

“As a Canadian brand proudly waving the ‘Made In Canada’ flag, Westcomb is poised to benefit from a larger distribution network in Quebec,” explains Alan Yiu, Chief Designer and President of Westcomb. “We are confident retailers will see the value in offering Westcomb gear as consumers are increasingly eyeing the origins of the goods they purchase.”

The expanding line of outerwear and apparel is 100 percent designed and built in their new factory with its in-house design studio located minutes from downtown Vancouver.
