Distributor sees rise despite economic downturn

Figures up y-o-y for Moore Large

Distributor Moore Large has seen its monthly figures climb, despite the uncertainty that the trade was subjected to at the start of the year.

Managing director Nigel Moore told BikeBiz: “As a company, we had just come off the back of a very good year in 2008, but with the weakening pound and economic downturn all the signs were pointing towards a very challenging period.”

“We have consistently exceeded our own monthly figures from last year on both the cycle and accessory sides of our business, so we feel encouraged that our hard work is paying off.”

Moore also announced that the distributor would be launching a new brand of bikes that target the mid-sector of the market, priced between £400 and £1,000.

He said: “Initially we will be concentrating on the road sector and we will have some very competitive bikes available in February 2010.”
