The Mountain Boot Co Ltd recently concluded its year end proceedings. Following a significant period of growth during 2008, where overall business grew by 16%, the company achieved a number of significant milestones, including hitting its five-year sales target set by Deuter of doubling sales in the UK market – inside three years!
2008 also saw continued growth within the established Scarpa and Grivel brands, with Grivel posting its highest performance in the UK since 1818.
2009 has started very well with February one the strongest turnover months in the company’s 15-year trading history.
Steve Roberts, MD, commented: “2008 has been a year with significant challenges and we expect 09 to be no different, however these results highlight that great product, backed by great service will pull through harder times”.
During March MBC is set to launch its distribution of a major new brand – Outdoor Research and several new product categories, including, Scarpa Alpine X shoes and Deuter sleeping bags.
