Loudmouth Golf has opened an international distribution center in China that will initially serve e-commerce customers and within the coming months, provide merchandise for retail outlets across the country.
As the world's second largest apparel market, and a rapidly growing force in the global golf industry, the opening of Loudmouth China marks an important milestone in Loudmouth's continuing international expansion efforts.
“Launching Loudmouth China is a tremendous step towards our goal of supporting our customers around the globe. It is very complicated for a foreign corporation to be granted an eCommerce platform by the Chinese government, and we are extremely proud of this accomplishment,” said Loudmouth President Dennis Green. “The Chinese have always loved fashion and the uptake of golf in China is outpacing all other nations. Golf courses are being built all over the country, and with golf becoming more accessible to the middle class, this is an incredible opportunity for Loudmouth to introduce our products to our Chinese customers.”
The PGA Tour and China Golf Association have recently created a new professional golf tour with 12 stops in 2014. Top professionals are already wildly popular in China and many have made appearances at tournaments including Loudmouth Golfer John Daly, who played in Shanghai last year on one of the stops of the European Tour, the BMW Masters.
Loudmouth China will offer a selection of their most popular patterns for both men and women including pants, shorts, mini shorts, capris and skorts. Sport coats and blazers will also be available for purchase through the Loudmouth Made-to-Order shop (MTO). Offering the latest trend of customization, MTO allows customers to modify the waist size and length of their pant, skort or mini short to provide the ultimate fit.
Founded in Sonoma, California in 2000, Loudmouth is now available worldwide including the U.S., Canada, UK/Europe, Australia, South Africa, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia and China.
