Marshall Distributing is asking dealers to stop by its booth for a free Marshall pit shirt valued at $89.95 retail. All they have to do is get their account number checked off a dealer list (one shirt per dealer) and wear the shirt out of the booth. Not already a Marshall dealer? Fill out a dealer application to get a free shirt also.
Marshall’s booth is only about 10 to 20 feet from its traditional spot. “We are displaying lots of new products this year,” says national sales manager Chuck Herman. “The list is long!”
New brands include ProGrip (goggles and grips), Sena (helmet communication systems), Xena (locks), Condor (wheel chocks), Cyclo (lubes and cleaners), Muck-Off (cleaners), Lighting Performance (floorboards and pegs for the Can-Am Spyder), Risk Racing (bike lifts and accessories), RZR Mask (riding dust masks), Sabo (replacement goggle lenses and tear-offs for all goggles), Shindy (carb repair kits) and Street FX (lighting for bikes).
New from Marshall Distributing house brands are Marshall Solo II MX apparel, the GMAX GM76X motocross helmet, Pink Ribbon Rider helmets by GMAX, a helmet brake light kit for GMAX helmets, a Zoan carbon fiber helmet, Zoan motocross helmets and Zoan half-helmets.
“When you look at all of the new part numbers from our existing vendors, the number of new items is in the thousands,” Herman says. “We will also have many ‘booth specials’ that dealers can take advantage of, right at the show.”
The Cass City, Mich. distributor says that in the second quarter it will begin using a new operating system. “Our goal with this project is to make order entry even easier and faster than it is now,” Herman says. “With total integration by year’s end we should see big enhancements to our dealers’ online experience with Marshall Distributing. … We are looking for another strong year for our dealers and ourselves.”
