WATERTOWN, US (March 8) – SHIFT Communications, a national, independent PR firm, today announced it has signed Shimano Inc. to its rapidly expanding client roster. Shimano is the world-leading manufacturer of bicycle components and sport fishing equipment.

SHIFT will support Shimano in educating the American public about how bicycling is part of the solution to many of our nation’s worst problems such as traffic congestion, pollution and health issues. “Bike to Work” events and award programs for bike-friendly initiatives and cities are examples of how the new partners will accomplish Shimano’s educational goals.

“SHIFT will be a strong partner for Shimano. They understand that reputations drive revenues, just as cycling drives better health,” said Jasen Thorpe, director of media relations with Shimano. “We were blown away by SHIFT’s enthusiasm and creativity, and are convinced they can help to create excitement about Shimano’s products among key audiences.”

“We are proud that a global brand leader like Shimano chose SHIFT for strategic counsel and tactical implementation of core programs,” said SHIFT Principal Jim Joyal. “We will do our part to ensure that Shimano is to bikes what Intel is to PCs. The quality of the components drives the power of the experience.” (Source: Business Wire)
