Premier Performance Products Distribution is now stocking and shipping Fastway Trailer Products, a line of towing tools and accessories from Progress Manufacturing.
“We think Fastway is a great fit as we continue to expand our product offerings,” Premier Performance Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing Bob Barra says, according to The Shop Mag. “Their fantastic lineup of hitches, ball mounts, locks and other towing accessories fits in perfectly with our focus on helping consumers get the most out of their trucks.”
“Having worked with Bob Barra in the past during his time at Stag-Parkway, I am very excited to continue our relationship,” Fastway Vice President of Sales Rich Elliott says. “As Fastway provides the link between trucks and trailers, we felt it was a natural fit to work closely with Premier as they expand their product offerings into the RV segment.”
