We are aggressively marketing our products across the nation, said Brian Correia, Pioneer Researchs director of sales and marketing. The sales rep organizations we have joined forces with have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the outdoor and water sports arenas within their territories. We are very excited about every one of the partnerships that we have formed.
