WP Suspension is opening its first American subsidiary, WP Suspension North America, and with it a network of WP Authorized Centers to meet demand.
When it comes to motorcycle suspension, WP Suspension has not only set a new standard globally, but is now proving its dedication to upholding this new standard in North America. WP Suspension is excited to announce the opening of its first American subsidiary – WP Suspension North America, Inc. – and with it, a network of WP Authorized Centers to satisfy the growing demand for WP products, parts and technical support in the U.S.
“WP suspension components are the most advanced in the motorcycle industry, so it’s important to have a strong, elite network of WP Authorized Centers,” said WP North America Business Development Manager Kyle Guglielmetti. “These highly qualified suspension centers have skilled technicians who are trained to properly maintain WP equipment. These centers will distribute WP’s premium motorsports suspension as well as spare parts for WP production suspension components.”
There are four WP Authorized Centers across the U.S.: PG Suspension, Factory Connection, Suspension Direct Inc. (SDI) and Race Tech. These WP Authorized Centers will not only offer service and maintenance of WP suspension components, but will also serve as exclusive distributors of WP’s premium A-Kit suspension. Known as the Cone Valve fork and TRAX shock, this factory-direct technology is the ultimate in performance, and will now be available to consumers through WP Authorized Centers.
PG Suspension has been a long-time fixture for WP suspension service in the U.S., and they are proud to become the first WP Authorized Center. Specializing in GNCC and Enduro set-ups, PG Suspension boasts a state-of-the-art facility, which includes a newly constructed workshop and a full-length off-road test track on the premises. PG Suspension (formerly known as WP Racing USA) prides itself on multiple regional and national off-road championships – testament to their exceptional experience and knowledge of WP Suspension systems. PG Suspension is also the official suspension tuner for the 2014 Factory Husqvarna Off-Road team including Mike Brown, Russell Bobbitt, Andrew DeLong and Jacob Argubright.
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with WP suspension,” said Bart Hayes, President of Powersport Group LLC. “This is the next step in offering a premium service to our customers. Moving forward, WP’s quality products and our winning reputation on and off the track will help; us to better service the Ride PG Suspension customers.”
