Lee Sails of Hong Kong has made changes to its distribution rights in Canada and areas of the USA.
Lee Sails Canada will now be responsible for all accounts, past, present and future throughout Canada as well as the eastern seaboard of the US. Previously, Lee Sails Canada looked after the Canadian market, excluding BC. The change has been in place since spring of 2014, and will not affect current orders.
"The company has gone through some major changes in the last year,' says Bob Dyer, President of Lee Sails Canada. "We now have offices across Canada, the Eastern Coast of the USA and Great Lakes and are pleased to welcome the sailors in these areas to enjoy the benefits we offer. With the knowledge and skill levels of our new staff, we are able to handle any sail requirements, (tall ships to schooners), (classics to ultra-modern).'
According to Dyer, the addition of BC to his territory is expected to represent an increase in sales of roughly 20 percent over what he previously sold in the rest of the country, while the substantial addition of the eastern US territory is expected to represent close to a 200-percent increase.
Lee Sails Canada is also now actively seeking agents, particularly for Canada's east coast as well as the North Carolina state area.
