Published August 17, 2011

PORTSMOUTH, NH (BRAIN)—POC Sports, supplier of gravity sports helmets, eyewear, body armor and apparel, has added industry sales veterans Tifosi Sales as POC USA’s Mid-Atlantic region wheels sales force.

Tifosi Sales is a manufacturer’s representative organization covering the eight-state Mid-Atlantic region including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington D.C. and Delaware. Tifosi Sales currently represents a select number of companies in technical and lifestyle apparel, automobile racks, energy food, high-end bicycles, framesets and functional accessories and components.

“As POC continues to grow our presence in this category, our number one priority is to make sure we're providing the best service possible to the independent bike dealer, and I have no doubt that Tifosi will do just that,” said POC USA vice president of sales Ben Wallace. “Tifosi has such an outstanding reputation, and their decision to represent our line speaks volumes to the potential of POC in the bike market. With innovative new products like our Trabec line of mountain bike helmets and VPD 2.0 body armor, we're in an exciting period of growth, and I'm confident that Tifosi Sales will help take it to that next level.”

"We're really excited to have this opportunity to get behind such a fresh and innovative brand during its formative stages in the IBD channel,” said Tifosi president Sandy Chapman. “POC has some amazing technologies that bring a whole new meaning to safety and performance in the cycling world. It's incredible what POC has accomplished in a few short years in terms setting new standards for design, ergonomics, materials and protection.”
