Colnago To Launch Colnago America for U.S. & Canada

Ernesto Colnago e C. srl., Cambiago, Italy announces the launch of a direct subsidiary: Colnago America, Inc.

"We are extremely excited to announce that we have created Colnago America, which will now be the direct supplier of Colnago frames and accessories in America," said Ernesto Colnago from company headquarters in Cambiago, Italy.

Transition of distribution services from Veltec Sports to Colnago America (based in Chicago, Il.) will be completed by the end of February 2009, with our top priority and focus on making this transition as smooth as possible for our retail customers and Colnago riders in the USA and Canada.

"Over the past several years, Colnago has experienced exceptional growth worldwide, but to reach our full potential in the North American market, we felt for a while, we needed to make a change," explained Alex Colnago, Colnago Sales Manager.

"For the first time in the long history of Colnago sales in America, we will be in a position to have full control over our distribution, sales and marketing. Now we will be able to offer more competitive prices, improved delivery and better service to our retailers and Colnago riders in North America."

"While we are in the process of defining the complete Colnago America Team, we can announce that our friend Soren Krebs, formerly of Veltec Sports, will be joining Colnago America with sales and general management responsibilities. We are confident that he can lead Colnago America going forward," explained Ernesto Colnago.

From February 10th onward, you can contact Soren at:
