Ben Thomson opens new distribution biz with Togs brand

UK bike industry veteran Ben Thomson has opened a new distribution firm to circulate the Togs brand to the bicycle trade.

Also owner of London bike shop SW Bicycle Company, Thomson will also turn his hand to circulating unique brands to others on the front line, adding Togs, a handlebar accessory designed to add comfort on long distance slogs.

Thomson told CyclingIndustry.News: “We start with a few incentives for shops interested in stock, such as free freight over £150, a listing on our site and with any brands we do such as Togs USA site. There’s also free point of sale with a buy in, as well as discounts for larger volumes. All information for Google shopping will be supplied as well.”

When asked about plans for the future he suggested that the business will focus on smaller, unique labels as opposed to selling anything already widely available in the market.

The distribution business will be found under the Method Cycles banner and a new website ready for B2B registration is now live here. Stores wishing to make contact can also do so by email here and by phone at 02086164049.
