MADISON, Wis. — LeMans Corp. founder and CEO Fred Fox recently told a gathering at the distributor’s annual National Vendor Presentation that the company’s first warehouse in Europe will open this spring.
Fox said LeMans Corp.’s participation in the European market will increase significantly in the coming year. Although the market presents several challenges, Fox is confidant LeMans can make big strides there over the next decade.
“Within 10-12 years, we think our European volume will be as big as it is in the United States,” he said.
Which suppliers will come onboard at Parts Europe is something that has not yet been announced. Fox said the company will start to unveil those companies at INTERMOT, the German motorcycle show. Some of those companies, Fox said, will include major manufacturers that previously have not had distributors.
