From May 1st, Madison will become the exclusive UK and Republic of Ireland distributor of Answer Products, including Manitou forks and shocks. There's still no official word on the mechanism of the collapse of Raw Experience so shops and fork owners who sent Manitou products to Edinburgh for warranty repairs are still in the dark on the whereabouts of their items.
Madison picks up Manitou
"We believe Manitou forks have great potential in our market," said Dominic Langan, MD of Madison.
"We are currently working hard with the team at Answer to quickly establish a Manitou service facility. It is hoped that this will be fully operational in May."
Answer president Glenn Miller said: "We have been talking with Madison about UK distribution and service for over four years. We are fortunate that circumstances are such that we can now bring them on. Madison has the resources and skilled personnel to take our company to the next level."
