Core Bike orders further boost distributor's performance

Hotlines records best January sales ever

Despite much of the country suffering disruptive heavy rain during the start of 2014, Hotlines has recorded its best January ever.

Strong sales throughout the month were boosted by a highly successful Core Bike Show which led to an order book full to the brim, BikeBiz was told.

Hotlines office manager Ed Ibbetson commented: “We are seeing fantastic growth in many of the brands in our portfolio at the moment. Brands such as WTB, Spank and iXS have gained incredible traction over the last six months and we see this pattern continuing throughout 2014.

"Early season sales of Lapierre and GHOST have been stronger than ever and the Nukeproof 2014 range has caught the attention of customers across the UK. It’s a great start to the year and we look forward to carrying on as we’ve started.”

Hotlines added: "We would like to thank all of the loyal customers that have supported our exclusive brands and been a part of this success story at the beginning of 2014. We look forward to working with you for the rest of 2014 and beyond."
