Vancouver, British Columbia (For Immediate Release) – With its expanding line of technically-driven performance styles and outerwear, Westcomb is broadening its capacity to serve retailers in Western Canada in addition to signing a new agency to manage growth in New England.

Long-time Westcomb sales representative, Tom Jones is expanding his capacity. Previously Tom managed the Westcomb accounts in British Columbia and the Yukon to much success and is now taking the reigns to deliver premium Westcomb designs to retailers in the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta as well.

“Well known for designing and manufacturing the best available technical apparel for outdoor enthusiasts, Westcomb is now positioned to earn new customers in these territories with its commitment to Canadian manufacturing and the new SUBZERO styles suited for everyday wear,” explains Tom.

Independent apparel and fashion professional Brian Rice is joining the Westcomb sales force to further build the brand’s presence in New England. Brian’s sales agency represents brands in the outdoor industry and fashion space giving him a keen eye for trend spotting and experience in driving sales at the retail level with complementing lines.

“Westcomb’s minimalist designs and tailored silhouettes are certain to catch the eye of consumers in New England.” explains Brian. “Astute retailers who know how to outfit their customers will appreciate Westcomb premium quality and use of leading fabric technologies.”

Westcomb continues to develop new styles and broaden its line. Fall 2014 saw the introduction of the SUBZERO line, a versatile collection of parkas designed to handle myriad weather conditions. The SUBZERO line joins the performance-driven A Line collection of hardshells and the Thermotek Down suite of down sweaters and insulation pieces. Rounding out the Fall/Winter Collection is the Thermotek series of midlayers and next-to-skin technologies and the Enduro line of hard-wearing, premium-performing active insulation and stretch woven fabrics.
