Zhik appoints Kubus Sports as Netherlands distributor

by Zhik 1 Feb 03:44 PST

Zhik are delighted to announce Kubus Sports, distributors of premium technical marine and sports brands, as their newly appointed distributor for the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

Kubus Sports was founded in 1970 and, together with 45 years expertise in selling technical sailing clothing, has expanded their multiple portfolio of brands into wind and kite surfing, foiling and watersports, wintersports and field hockey.

Piet Poelmann, CEO of Zhik adds, "We are thrilled to be in partnership with Kubus Sports and are impressed with their highly professional team and organisation. They are a household name in the Dutch marine market, and their experience, expertise and enthusiasm for top quality technical brands is exactly what we need to build Zhik's presence in these markets."

Alex Cretier, Owner and Director of Kubus Sports, expects to hit the ground running. "We are highly energized about presenting Zhik. It's a dynamic, modern and creative brand, driven by sailors who love and live the sport. It makes them different which fits well with Kubus Sports. It's a technically superior product that's not yet as well known in the offshore market as it is in the dinghy world. Over the next few years want to build Zhik to be the leading marine clothing brand in the Dutch market."

Each discipline at Kubus Sport has a dedicated section that focuses on each sport in the showrooms, warehouse and backoffice.

Key contacts for all marine dealers will be sales agent Teun Rovers, and Arjan Bakker responsible for internal sales.
