We are very happy to announce that we are now working with West Polo as our European based manufacturer. After some careful consideration, a visit to the factory and many discussions with owner Chris Kudlik we have decided to work together to bring our designs here to Europe. West Polo will manufacture the designs under license an also sell then through their networks too. The boats will be available via JC POLO as well here in Europe. We hope to get a set of Demo boats together quickly so that we can show our products off at events and get as many people as possible playing in them.
Already we have been buying their helmets for some time.
West Polo brings a wealth of experience manufacturing kayaks and composites. Exciting times :-)
This is the beginning of a new chapter for our Company. While we have been selling some products here in Europe now for the last year or so we have decided to open a specific European website to better cater for the market. Obviously the first and most obvious change is the fact we are shipping from Europe in Euro's. We are going to be offering a similar range of products as we have in New Zealand, also likely to offer a couple other brands in the coming months. We are also currently in negotiations with some potential manufacturers to make our polo boat designs here in Europe to keep the costs down and ensure faster response times.
Our primary base is in Prague where owner James Mitchell is currently based.
James is currently playing lots of tournaments around Europe so if you see him say hi. Usual team is Prague :-)
Upcoming events he will attend:
- 13/14 July Franco Baschirotto Memorial Trophy- Italy
- 20/21 July Budapest International- Hungry
- 27/28 July London International- GB
- 10/11 August Swizz Open at kreuzlinger??- Switzerland
- 17/18 August De Paddle- Belgium
- more to be added
One idea we are keen to work on is to get a network of dealers around various clubs and countries to represent our company and products. Ideally we want polo players who have lots of polo experience and are looking for a way to help fund their addiction. If this sounds like you contact James Mitchell to discuss options.
Looking forward to meeting you all and sharing the Polo love :-)
