Eugene company continues ongoing efforts to partner and grow with local bike shops

EUGENE, OREGON (July 22, 2016) – Burley Design – known for its award-winning outdoor recreational transport gear trusted by generations of families since 1978 – is proud to announce its immediate continued expansion in Canada by teaming up with its long-term partner, Quality Bicycle Products (QBP).

For over eight years, QBP has been a key partner for Burley, helping the brand by strategically implementing initiatives that bolster bike shop success.  The two companies have teamed up again to take this successful US strategy to Canada.

“We are excited to support Burley’s North American expansion by offering its products to our dealers in Canada,” said Aaron James, QBP Canadian Sales Manager. “To kick off the partnership, we’ll be offering special Canadian Dealer pricing beginning in July. QBP’s year-round high-fill rate, broad product range and quick shipping options will collectively support Independent Bike Dealers in Canada.”

Burley believes in supporting independent bike dealers by focusing on long-term strategic sustainability for their customers and for that reason was selected as one of 39 companies to be a part of QBP’s Dealer’s Choice Program. QBP launched its Dealer’s Choice Program to further support and bolster local bike shops, helping them thrive in a market that is constantly shifting and evolving.

“We’re excited to expand our partnership by opening up Canada as a new distribution territory,” said Allison Coughlin, Burley Sales and Marketing Manager. “We look forward to expanding with QBP and their network of dealers to support and grow our Independent Bike Dealer base in Canada.”

Burley’s best-in-class bike trailers, kid’s cycles and cargo trailers will be available immediately for Canadian dealers to order.
