CASS CITY, Mich. - Marshall Distributing has partnered with a Canadian company to supply parts for Chinese ATVs, side-by-sides, dirtbikes and scooters.

Outside Distributing is an aftermarket parts supplier that works with distributors in Canada, including Kimpex, Gamma and Royal Distributing. Marshall dealers in the U.S. now have access to the Outside Distributing's complete line of products.

“Outside Distributing’s product line of easy-to-find replacement parts for Chinese make/model units is something we feel will complement our dealers’ OEM business,” said Doug Gilbert of Marshall Distributing. “By providing part support for these import units, many dealers will be able to attract new customers, increase apparel and accessory sales, and further drive their OEM business.”

Outside Distributing also operates a retail store in Newmark, Ont., called Outside Powersports. The store was sourcing parts for its own repair service when owner Andrew Hepburn realized that many dealers needed parts for Chinese units. The company today claims to have “very strong relationships with the factories producing these items,” working directly with the manufacturers.

“Our buying volume helps us to control all quality aspects of the process to ensure a positive experience for our customers,” Hepburn said.
