Deco. BMX and Profile Racing would like to announce the new US Distribution of Deco. products through Profile headquarters in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Below are a few questions between Chad DeGroot (owner of Deco. BMX) and Matt Coplon (TM and head sales) about the Distribution situation.
Profile has been making some moves the last few years, now with Deco. being distributed by Profile Racing, how do you feel about this?
It’s been ten years now since I came on board to manage Profile Distribution. We have never been in a position where we seek out product to distribute—we actually started the distro here b/c most of our Domestic and International distributors cannot stock all the variations (odds and ends) of the bike products that we manufacture. Through those years, we’ve picked up a very limited number of brands (Country Bikes and Sun Rims) to compliment what we carry here in the shop. For the most part, those brands are close to us on a personal level…picking up Deco falls into the same category. DeGroot has been riding for Profile now for four years…it’s been a strong relationship and anything that Chad does we would like to be in a position to help support him. He’s family, and Deco is quality Product that we both ride and feel confident in pushing.
You mentioned offering some completes, Profile parts and Deco. rounding it off, this leads into some real high end bikes. Is this more for promo or will these be for sale?
Like we currently offer with Country/Profile, we plan on doing the same with Deco through our Online store. Basically, a higher end Profile complete featuring a Deco frame, fork, bars, grips, and pedals.
There are two very different companies uniting to scratch each others backs, is this a Florida thing?
Less Florida, more family! You’re still a yankee until you reach that 20 year residency mark…that’s coming up, right?
