“With KNS Reps recently winning agency sales awards by two reputable brands, their acceptance by numerous dealers, and the firepower of 4 hard working professionals, this wonderful team is the obvious choice for our growing brand,” says Christian Mason, Deuter USA’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “Given that the Rockies are in our backyard it’s imperative that we penetrate deeper into core specialty retail. We’re confident that KNS Reps will take our brand to the next level here. Our dedication to dealers and retail staff is in line with their philosophy and service, so this is an excellent partnership for everyone.”
