Parkit360 Hires Martin Flory Group

Fri Mar 10, 2017

Parkit360, manufacturer of innovative battery-powered trailer dollies, has hired Martin Flory Group. The PR firm will publicize its products and corporate news throughout North America.

Ontario, Canada-based Parkit360 manufactures dollies with capacities up to 15,000 pounds that are compact enough to fit into the trunk of a small sedan. Attached to a trailer, the user simply steers the combination around obstacles and tight corners. Unlike backing with a vehicle, it's easy to see where the load is at all times, making a clearance of inches effortless, according to a press release. Its website is www.parkit360.ca.

"Anyone who has even considered backing a trailer will instantly see the benefit of Parkit360's line of power dollies," Martin Flory Group General Manager Kelly Flory says. "We're excited to be working with them and helping them expand their reach through media coverage."

Since 1962, Martin Flory Group has represented its base of clients in the global recreational and commercial marine, outdoor and RV markets. It works with editors and writers worldwide to help companies successfully promote their products through earned editorial coverage.
