The most exciting news for us is our expansion into the US, which has seen the opening of a new office in California, LA, and new partnerships with Toys R Us as well as many independent resellers. It’s has always been a dream of Joe’s to break into the US market and the success of Thunder, along with a recent investment, has enabled that to happen in 2014!
Over the last few months the Vuly team has been making the trip across the world from our Brisbane HQ, to take our trampolines to the kids of America! Vuly is very quickly building an outstanding US sales force that will take our amazing trampolines and customer service to the American market, where Thunder is already hugely anticipated.
Our Global Business Manager, James Murphy, is very excited to take Thunder to the US and replicate Vuly’s Australian success over in the States. “It’s a great opportunity to build our presence in another market from the ground up,” he says. “It’s very encouraging that there’s so much demand for Thunder already, and we’re getting ready to open up customer orders within the next few days.”
Joe welcomed the financial and strategic support of a minority stakes financial investment in the company that he established as a 19 year old in 2007 and is now worth more than $20 million.
“This type of stabilising investment gives us the ability to commence major operations in the US,” Joe says. “The two investors have a wealth of experience and their insight will benefit the company in many ways.”
Joe hopes to be supplying to 500 retailers in the US within the next two years.
