BOISE, Idaho - Western Power Sports' ongoing transition from a regional distributor to a national one will accelerate in the near future with planned expansions in facilities and personnel.
The Boise, Idaho-based distributor held its annual national sales meeting on Aug. 14-17, attracting the most vendors (43) its ever had and reflecting the company's growing reach in the industry.
WPS first reached outside its original territory almost three years ago by opening a warehouse in Memphis, Tenn. That move led to a dramatic growth period, both in personnel and sales. It's also led to WPS President Craig Shoemaker's plan to open up a warehouse in the Northeast sometime in the next year.
“I think it will be way more apparent in the next few years that we'll be labeled more of a national distributor,” Shoemaker said in an interview with Powersports Business.
