GREEN, OHIO – Little Guy Worldwide has announced its further expansion into the distribution of high end campers and trailers. The new distribution strategy will focus on improving production capacity, product quality, leveraging new buying power and the development of new product lines.
Little Guy Worldwide has secured manufacturing and will be moving into a 169,000 square foot facility large enough to accommodate current and new product line demands.
Little Guy Worldwide also has reserved another 200,000 square feet of space in anticipation of future expansion.
“As a leader in the teardrop landscape, we know exactly what our dealer base and clients are demanding, and we have made a large investment into a product line that will be a true force to be reckoned with,” Little Guy Worldwide Owner and President Joe Kicos says. “We look forward to leveraging Little Guy’s expertise and knowledge of the dealer/customer base nationally to establish a more prominent, effective presence in the leisure camping market."
Little Guy Worldwide’s new expansion strategy includes instituting two PDI processes before shipping, a three year structural warranty, brand specific dedicated product managers and engineers as well as new and improved products based on dealer and customer feedback.
Little Guy Worldwide’s current agreement to distribute products exclusively through an outside manufacturer expires April 1, 2017. Little Guy Worldwide will be announcing full product line details in the coming months.
Those products will be available in spring 2017.
