To say that Thuleâ€™s beginnings in the U.S. were humble would be an understatement. Founding associate Ake Skeppner sold products at windsurf competitions on the New England shoreline, exhibited the result line at a number of different trade shows, and even canvassed townsperson retailers in the greater New York area, all from his "office"--a now-famous bus station wagon. Initial success was found in the small but growing sport of windsurfing where a effectual, reliable roof rack was an indispensable piece of equipment. This was promptly followed by success in the ski business where Thule's Swedish heritage undeniably helped the product gain rapid acceptance.
By the mid-1980s, the band sold products directly to ski and windsurfing shops but sold through distributors to lecture the large and growing bike business. A risky decision was made to drop these distributor relationships and sell direct to retailers through a network of independent sales representatives. Much of the presence's market success today can be traced to that decision. Shortly after, Ake hired an organize and set up a small assembly plant in Elmsford, New York in order to pattern and manufacture bike carriers that would offer the features demanded by the U.S. consumer and clash effectively with other racks on the market.
The company has since grown rapidly through fallout innovation, a commitment to quality, and the continuance of a strong entrepreneurial vital spirit as well as continuing to evolve their products to meet the needs of users.
