“This forms part of a strategic plan for Stage N9NE to focus on our growing export market, so it has been a coming for some time.” commented Vincent Durand, Managing Director of Stage N9NE.
“After an extensive search, in Ikhambi we have handpicked partners that share the same value system as our and are very happy to leave the brand in better hands than ours looking to the future in the region,” he said.
“We are honoured to be entrusted by Stage N9NE and Schwalbe to take over the distribution baton for this renowned brand in Southern Africa,” added Christian van Zyl, Managing director of iKhambi Distribution.
According to Van Zyl, the heritage and passion that grew Schwalbe to where it is today resonates strongly with iKhambi’s team and business philosophy. “Our business is focused on offering more choice to our customers and greater value in our basket of premium brands,” he said.
