TGB to sell Sunice golfwear products in UK, Ireland

Sunice, which showcases golfwear that embodies the perfect fusion of science and fashion-forward style, has established a United Kingdom company, Sunice Europe Ltd., in partnership with Surrey-based The Golf Business Ltd., to sell the Sunice product in the United Kingdom and Ireland, Sunice announced.

Sunice, owned by Montreal-based Fletcher Leisure Group of Canada, has opened a UK-based office in conjunction with The Golf Business Ltd. (TGB), which will be Sunice's business subsidiary for the UK and Ireland. Sunice is a recognised expert and leader in the technical outerwear industry with a brand offering not only fashionable products, but also a superior fit, to amateur and professional athletes.

TGB, located in Chertsey just outside London, is a highly respected, well-known sales and marketing company specializing in the supply and promotion of top products aimed at discerning golfers throughout the UK and Ireland. "Our partnership is structured so we can be very competitive in the UK and Ireland by combining Sunice resources out of Montreal with The Golf Business expertise in these markets," said Mark Fletcher, president of Sunice.

"We don't want to just have a distribution-and-marketing agreement with The Golf Business, because then we're at arm's length.

"Having The Golf Business as a partner allows us to be fully involved in our UK and Ireland market business. It also allows us to avoid undue distribution costs in the business, which makes us less competitive in the eyes of our customers and consumers." TGB, led by owner/managing director Tim Street and sales director Chris Thundow, has extensive golf-industry experience in the apparel market, with a vast background in the waterproof and outerwear market, including Gore-Tex products.

Street said: "We are very excited about being affiliated with Sunice, whose product and reputation is superb. "Our unique relationship allows us to utilize the talents of Sunice's Montreal-based team while we utilise our background in the waterproof and outerwear market, plus our expertise in the UK and Ireland market, to sell and market Sunice's incredible product over here. It's definitely a win-win for both parties."

Thanks is owed to Ashworth and TaylorMade / Adidas Golf Europe, who managed the brand in the last few years. Despite those companies having now gone in separate directions, Fletcher said both companies remain friends, and thanked Ben Sharpe, and Giles Birkhead in particular, for their hard work and dedication to the brand. "We are enthusiastic about creating a stable,long-term relationship with The Golf Business," he added.

"We'll be building Sunice with brand-enhancing and brand-strengthening strategies and those, in concert with our solid team, make us very excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. "Product-wise, we are confident that we will continue to be a strong force in the market as we look to expand the Gore-Tex collections and release stretch products."
