VANCOUVER, BC (24 March 2000)--Airbomb.com Marketing Ltd. of Vancouver has received a substantial order from US bicycle manufacturer Ellsworth Handcrafted Bicycles Inc. of Ramona, California for 200 custom 'bike-builds', to be delivered to Mazda dealers across the US, in conjunction with a major marketing promotion by Mazda for a new sport utility vehicle.
"This is another milestone in the company's development," said David Houston, president of Airbomb. "This order confirms that Airbomb's business model is succeeding. With this order added to our current strong growth, March will be our best sales month ever. Our strong international partners in manufacturing combined with the low overhead costs associated with internet sales means that we can sell our products profitably at prices even below certain domestic manufacturers," he continued. "Because Airbomb does not have any retail stores to manage, we can offer prices on-line that most manufacturers cannot match without impacting their retail distribution channels." Airbomb.com Marketing Ltd. is an e-retailer of sporting goods, primarily bicycles and related components and accessories. The company markets products acquired from a variety of suppliers at discount prices through its website. Airbomb also offers manufacturers private label agreements, selling their products under the 'airbomb' label and by co-branding with established companies. (JW)
