Zyro recruits brand manager ahead of taking on distribution and warranty for folders from next year

UK to see its ‘broadest range ever’ of Dahon product in 2010

Distributor Zyro has told BikeBiz that it is set to bring the broadest range of Dahon bike and accessories ever distributed in the UK to cycle retailers next year.

Earlier this year Zyro announced the exclusive distribution deal with the folding bike manufacturer. The distributor is currently taking orders for the 2010 range, which is coming in to stock between January and March. Sales for the bikes are already buoyant, according to the firm.

“Initial sales are impressive and the take up from new accounts indicates trade confidence is higher than ever before, showing the confidence in Zyro’s level of service and aftersales care is very strong,” commented sales director Andy Budd.

Zyro is also to take on service and warranty for 2010 models onwards, while all previous seasons service and warranty issues will continue to be dealt with by the UK’s former distributor, Fisher Outdoor Leisure. Rich Arthur, Dahon Warranty, said: “We’re committed to providing the best parts and warranty service in the industry and servicing Dahon’s 2010 models will be no exception."

Following the distribution deal Zyro has recruited Ian Phillips as Dahon Brand Manager. Senior commercial manager Chris Davis commented on the appointment: “We are pleased to announce that Ian Phillips will join the team as Dahon’s Brand Manager at the end of this month. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge in the cycle industry and we are looking forward to welcoming him.”

To request a buyers guide for the new range, or to place an order, dealers should call 01845 521742 or email sales@zyro.co.uk. For all other 2010 enquiries only, dealers should email dahon@zyro.co.uk.
