Q Cycle Bringing Exustar to U.S.

Published August 31, 2009

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (BRAIN)—Newly formed Q Cycle LLC will be the exclusive distributor of Exustar products in the U.S.

Industry veteran Bill Imielski is the experience behind Q Cycle, which has already been shipping Exustar product from its 6,000 square foot Albuquerque, New Mexico facility since mid-July.

Imielski's long career in the industry includes positions with Schwinn, Diamondback, Lake and SixSixOne.

Imielski said, "My multiple brand experience over the years has helped show me what it takes to make and sell a quality product that people want. Exustar's attention to detail and high quality manufacturing gives us just that to present to U.S. dealers."

Exustar makes shoes, pedals, gloves, helmets and other accessory items which are widely distributed via a worldwide network of over 40 distributors. Exustar has a long history building private label products for many bicycle industry companies but in recent years has expanded its own Exustar product line.

Establishing U.S. distribution completes the final pieces of the puzzle. Calvin Hsieh, Exustar managing director said, "Imielski's long and respected history with powerful brands is what made the deal with Q Cycle so easy for us. Exustar will support a strong push into the U.S. with Q Cycle."

Imielski can be reached at bill@qcycle.com or (505) 899-6336.
