SEATTLE, WA (July 18, 2006) – To streamline its business operations in the United States and Canada, original travel golf bag manufacturer, PORTERLINEâ?¢, announced recently the formation of its North American headquarters, Porterline Incorporated, basing its logistical and marketing operations on the west coast.
Currently marketed by Visionary Golf Incorporated, whose contract ends July 31, 2006, Porterline Incorporated will assume all business operations effective August 1, 2006, including e-commerce for all its business, corporate and end-user markets.
Lauded by industry observers as a positive development, the new company will have a more robust support structure to provide customer service with greater efficiency and offer shorter turn-around times.
Poh H. Thng, Senior Vice President for the new HQ, said Porterline will continue to build on the excellent work that has been done with extreme finesse and savvy by Visionary Golf to place the PORTERLINEâ?¢ products on the forefront of the golf merchandising business. Accordingly, with this leg up, Porterline will be poised to take the products to unprecedented levels and new frontiers while maintaining its position as market leader.
Originally designed in 2000 as a hybrid of the hardy travel luggage and light-weight golf bag for the avid golfer traversing long distances for a tournament or vacation getaway, PORTERLINEâ?¢ products are found in more than 20 countries worldwide, a major endorsement of its renown and popularity among golfing enthusiasts.
Coinciding with its new corporate presence, Porterline will be releasing 3 new bag models that are specially designed for the North American market: SkyExplorer, Expedition and TravelPlay-3G. In keeping to its philosophy that PORTERLINE products are "built to travel and designed to play", these 3 special North American bags (http://www.porterline.com/usa/index.html) are radically improved models of bestsellers incorporating advanced features that are set to take the market by storm.
Already a household name for optimal golf club protection for the frequent traveler, PORTERLINE continues to make advances in its product designs to ensure functional elegance, relevancy and comfort.
