The Cortland Line Company has retained Ferguson-Keller Associates as the new sales representative agency for the Midwest region.  Their territory covers Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Ferguson-Keller's staff of 18 sales and support personnel will begin representing Cortland in the region on June 1, 2014.

Ferguson-Keller Associates has serviced outdoor retailers and distributors across the Midwest for over 50 years. They pride themselves on providing the highest level of customer service, professionalism, and expertise to clients in the outdoor space.

“We are very fortunate to have Ferguson-Keller join our national sales force,” said Randi Swisher, Cortland vice president of sales. “Their team brings a wealth of knowledge and fishing expertise and will be a great asset to the retailers in this very important sales territory. I'm very confident that the retailers in this region will appreciate the outstanding service and knowledge they will provide.”

“Our entire sales team is excited to represent Cortland, especially since they are the oldest premier line company in the United States,” added Bill Kunzer, president and CEO of Ferguson-Keller. “I can remember when I was a kid learning how to fly fish with a Cortland outfit and now I am honored to represent such a legendary company in the fishing industry. My staff can't wait to grow the business with retailers and distributors of quality fly and sportfishing gear.”
