Kimpex Expands Into Russia


Kimpex, Drummondville, Quebec, a Canadian distributor of parts, accessories and clothing for the marine and powersports industries, announced its expansion overseas with the opening of its Russian subsidiary in Saint Petersburg.

This expansion will reinforce Kimpex's position in the Russian market and the company will become the first Canadian distributor to get a direct foothold in the country.

“We have been present in Russia for several years now through local distributors. By setting up there directly, we will be able to offer better service to retailers and help them benefit from all our products,” says Michel Coté, Kimpex Vice President Sales. “We chose Saint-Petersburg as a location for our operations because it is a strategic location for us, a central base for our overall operations there.”

Kimpex products, CKX line of helmets/clothing and Commander Track kits will soon be available in the Saint Petersburg warehouse in order to service all retailers in Russia.

Kimpex has three distribution centres and over 50,000 available products. With its headquarters located in Drummondville, Quebec, the company has more than 3,000 retailers in Canada, the United States and more recently Russia.
