Having already sold exhaust systems to the general public, R&G is excited to announce it has strengthened its partnership with fellow British brand Scorpion, becoming a sub-distributor and offering the Derbyshire-based Company’s products direct to the UK trade.
Explaining the rationale behind the move, R&G’s Managing Director, Simon Hughes, said “While Scorpion has its famous core of “Red Power Centres”, there is always call for ad hoc ordering from other non-Scorpion account holders. For example, a dealer may carry a different exhaust brand but wish to service a customer who specifically asks for a Scorpion end can or system. We will hold stock, and as most UK dealers hold an account with R&G, we can provide a very useful additional service, as we do with other performance products already, such as BMC, SpeedAngle etc.”
Synonymous with innovative and performance-driven products, Scorpion is a perfect accompaniment to R&G’s range of race-driven products. R&G has already been working with Scorpion, making bespoke exhaust hangers for the needs of teams backed by both Companies – namely Quattro Plant Kawasaki and Team WD-40. There are also plans afoot for R&G to offer back-up to Scorpion-clad teams in the BSB race paddock in 2016, using the R&G mobile unit which is present at every round.
Commenting on the partnership, Stuart Reid, of Scorpion, said “We’re very proud that our two elite British brands are working together in this official capacity and are sure that consumers, dealers and racers alike will benefit from the closer association”.
