Headsweats, a Cincinnati-based manufacturer of performance headwear for runners and athletes, expanded their international presence with a partnership with Podium Imports, a distributor of cycling, running, fitness and nutrition products to independent retailers across Canada.

Currently, Podium represents over 400 cycling, running, swimming, triathlon and outdoor retail locations.

“The Canadian running and endurance market has grown tremendously over the past few years, and we’re excited to bring the Headsweats brand and message to these retailers and athletes,” said Mike McQueeney, president of Headsweats.  “Our partnership with Podium Imports will be pivotal in helping us penetrate the Canadian market and offer even more opportunity for growth.”

“We’re thrilled to be adding the leader in performance headwear to our lineup of great brands, and our dealer base is already showing strong support,” said Brian McCoy, owner of Podium Imports. “Headsweats already has a strong retail and consumer following in Canada, and we’re excited to expose even more retailers and consumers to this top-notch brand.”

Headsweats and Podium Imports will exhibit at Interbike in Las Vegas, NV, September 21-23.
