IDAHO FALLS, Idaho - MotorFist, a company that produces a line of technical clothing for snowmobile enthusiasts, announced it will distribute its products in eastern Canada through Kimpex.

Kimpex reps will sell the MotorFist product line in Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. MotorFist said Kimpex reps will be targeting dealerships this fall with specialized programs for the company's snow gear line, which includes the Stomper boot and Rekon jacket. Both products feature the company's patented eVent waterproof, breathable technology.

"Kimpex has a strong management team and exceptional distribution channels, and their experience with their focused CKX line of gear is a perfect [complement] to our brand,' said Jennifer Jacobson, MotorFist vice president of operations.

"Everyone at Kimpex is excited to partner with the MotorFist family," said Michel Cote, vice president of sales at the Canadian distributor. "Like us, they are passionate about snowmobiling and are all riders themselves. This partnership allows Kimpex to provide our customers the best snowmobile garment solution on the market."

MotorFist continues to sell dealer direct in the western Canada provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. In the United States, MotorFist sells dealer-direct through a network of sales representatives.
