ProQuip named Preferred Supplier to 2014 European Ryder Cup Team

MARBLEHEAD, Mass. -- ProQuip will continue its long association with The Ryder Cup following its appointment as Preferred Supplier to the 2014 European Ryder Cup Team at Gleneagles, Scotland.

The Scottish golf weatherwear specialist has a rich heritage in the prestigious event and will design and supply its 20th Ryder Cup waterproof suit when the biennial match between Europe and the USA returns to the home of golf, Scotland, in two years' time.

ProQuip is fresh off outfitting the 2012 European Ryder Cup Team, where its proprietary rainsuit was the apparel of choice for Captain Jose Maria Olazabal and his assistant captains to fend off the chilly Chicago mornings.

ProQuip, which also was up to the task during rainy and blustery conditions at Celtic Manor two years ago, is the most popular weatherwear brand in Ryder Cup history, with 19 of the last 30 teams - European and American - selecting the brand to supply their team rainsuits. Over the last decade ProQuip has been the choice of Ryder Cup Captains Sutton, Woosnam, Faldo, Montgomerie, and now Jose Maria Olazabal. And from 1983-95, ProQuip supplied weatherwear to both teams for an unprecedented seven straight competitions.

"We are thoroughly honored to gain such consistent acceptance by the most accomplished individuals, events and governing bodies in golf," says Peter Dalton, CEO of ProQuip USA. We certainly wish all the competitors sunny skies at Gleneagles, but feel confident that the European Team will stay warm and dry should weather conditions turn inclement."

All products from ProQuip's 2013 collection, including rain suits, windwear and technical knitwear, are now available with The Ryder Cup crest. The Trophy Suit, using the same high-performance fabric as the European Team rain suits, is now be available in the United States, coinciding with the completion of The Ryder Cup.

Headquartered in Edinburgh, Scotland, ProQuip Ltd. touches four continents with its dedicated range of weatherwear. ProQuip USA is the company's North American distributor, based in Marblehead, MA.
