EPM Performance Imports announced it has secured exclusive distribution rights of Hyperpro suspension products and steering dampers in the United States.

Hyperpro, which is based in The Netherlands, specializes in progressive fork springs, shocks and steering dampers for 1,500 motorcycle models. Nearly 30,000 spring and damping combinations are available. Hyperpro says it manufactures the majority of its suspension components in house.

Englishtown, N.J.-based EPM Performance Imports has "enjoyed a long, prosperous relationship with Hyperpro and is also the exclusive distributor of YSS suspension components. Its comprehensive suspension shop refreshes, revalves and rebuilds OEM and aftermarket shocks, performs on-site suspension service and set-up, in addition to building one-off shocks for custom bikes," according to the announcement.

EPM said it will manufacture Hyperpro shocks at its central New Jersey facility with "extensive technical guidance from the Dutch company to replicate its production standards."

"Working with EPM, we experienced a tremendous increase in turnover," said Hyperpro International Sales Manager Jan Belder. "It has done a great job selling and servicing our products. We are convinced that this new relationship will build deeper market penetration and strengthen the brand."

Klaus Huenecke, president of EPM, said the new arrangement "will allow us to stock the entire Hyperpro product line and provide quick fulfillment and shock-service turnaround for dealers."
