“This is a critical step for Vibram as we continue to grow our Finished Goods Business in Canada,” states Chris Melton, Vibram’s sales director of the Americas. “A Canadian-specific, Vibram site provides us with quicker distribution in Canada and will help us control rising tariffs on our product crossing the border.”
Vibram’s Canadian site will focus specifically on its Finished Goods Business including the FiveFingers® and Furoshiki product categories. The website will be managed by its Canadian distributor, Rock Gear Distribution (RGD), and all products purchased from the site will ship from Canada.
RGD has a comprehensive in-house logistics, customer service, marketing and sales management team as well as experienced independent sales representatives that offer coverage across Canada. Additionally, RGD offers terms in Canadian dollars and quick delivery times with its Canadian warehouse.
Melton continues, “Our goal is to make doing business with Vibram easier in Canada and to provide consumers with styles and assortments that serve them best.”
