Summit Golf Brands signs agreement with Glen Argyle Distribution

NEW YORK -- Summit Golf Brands, Inc., parent company of Fairway & Greene, EP Pro and Zero Restriction announced that Glen Argyle Distribution Inc. will become the exclusive distributor of Fairway & Greene and Zero Restriction products in Canada.

Glen Argyle has been the exclusive distributor for EP Pro for a number of years, so will now add Fairway & Greene and Zero Restriction to the stable of brands that it distributes in Canada. "Our strategy as we develop our International business is to have one distributor for all 3 of our brands in a territory wherever possible, so we are excited to have all of our brand offerings with Glen Argyle in Canada" said Chris Heyn, CEO of Summit Golf Brands. "Catherine Bastien and her team at Glen Argyle have done a tremendous job building our EP Pro business in Canada, so we are confident of their ability to do the same with Fairway & Greene and Zero Restriction" said Heyn.

Mint Green, the previous distributor of Fairway & Greene and Zero Restriction in Canada made a decision to focus their efforts on Cobra and Puma Golf after the acquisition of Cobra by Puma Golf earlier this year. "We have enjoyed our association with Summit Golf Brands, and Fairway & Greene and Zero Restriction in particular over the years, so wish Summit and Glen Argyle all the best in the future" said Ted Fletcher, President of Puma Canada.

Glen Argyle will take over full control of the Sales and Distribution of Fairway & Greene and Zero Restriction effective with the Spring '11 selling season, and will begin shipping product on January 1, 2011. Glen Argyle's corporate headquarters are in Montreal, Quebec.
