Press Release from HPI Racing:
Today, we are pleased to announce new partnerships with four fantastic distribution channels across North America!
For the United States, we welcome back HRP Distributing in Utah to our distribution channel, and say hello to A Main Hobbies and the HobbyTown network of stores, and for Canada we’re also pleased to welcome back Hi-Performance Distributors.
As experienced, hobby product resellers of distinction, all of these companies are familiar with the products, processes and staff of HPI Racing, and we have every faith in their abilities to get our products into the hands of our fans!
These new partners share our belief that the number one priority right now at HPI Racing is achieving stable and consistent spare parts availability for our customers in North America. Owners of HPI Racing RC products have invested in our brand and it is vitally important that we keep our customers bashing, scaling, drifting and getting the absolute best out of their hobby.
With that in mind, we’re happy to say that containers of HPI spare parts have already landed in North America and are working their way through these channels. We are thrilled that hobby stores and customers around the US and Canada will now see an influx of spares support and kits in the coming days! Plus, high profile products like the Venture FJ Cruiser and RS4 Sport 3 Hoonicorn, along with our entire range, are also on the way and will be available from now on.
Alan Cocker, Sales Manager for HPI Racing, said:
"We know that HPI Racing customers across the world want to keep driving their cars and trucks whenever they can, and adding these new partners to our distribution network will help us keep HPI fans in the US and Canada stocked up with parts and our newest kits for many years to come."
Tim Van Ert from HobbyTown said:
"HPI have consistently recognized and promoted the importance of hobby stores within our industry and we are now very proud to be part of the HPI Racing family, and we look forward to building on that enthusiasm through our wide network of HobbyTown franchises across the United States."
Kendall Bennett from A Main Hobbies said:
"HPI has always remained popular with our customers and we are excited to help take on the task of distributing HPI Racing products through our website, our shop and to other top retailers in our network.”
Bill Jeric from HRP said:
"It's great to have HPI back with us once again! We know the future is very bright for our partnership, the demand is certainly there and we’re more than ready to meet the needs of retailers from our two distribution centers".
Dan Schellenberg from Hi-Performance said:
"We're very familiar with the complete line of HPI Racing products and look forward to servicing all of their customers and fans across Canada. Canadians have a great appetite for HPI and we’re excited to fulfil it!"
Model shops and end customers across North America will be happy to know that the supply of all HPI Racing products will be improved moving forward!
