Thule Germany, the German subsidiary of the Swedish specialist for bags and transport solutions, took charge of distributing its own “travel luggage and bags” segment this February. It is also managing sales in Austria from its headquarters in Neumarkt. Aqipa, the Austrian distributor, had been handling sales in Germany and Austria until the end of January. The Swedish specialist for bags aims to expand its business-travel and lifestyle product segments, strengthen personal contacts with retailers and distribution partners, and thereby reinforce its partnerships, processes and agreements.
