A little bit of outdoor industry business acquisition news to start your morning.
Wenonah will be moving the QCC operation from its current home base of
The good news is that all the QCC employees have been offered jobs over at Wenonah Canoes and QCC founder, Steven Freund will remain with Wenonah Canoe, managing the QCC brand.
This should bring a bit of a shift for Wenonah’s overall business model. QCC was based around the business model of selling directly to customer and shipped out individual boats while Wenonah generally will only sells to customers through its network of outdoor stores. The news article I saw the announcement in specifically said it would continue selling QCC boats factory direct to customers.
I tried to find more information on the purchase on the Wenonah website but they haven’t updated their company news section since August of 2009.
