Whoa! I guess the recession isn’t holding everyone down! NHS distribution acquires Flip skateboards! First Tony Hawk takes full ownership of Birdhouse from Blitz (although they still distribute birdhouse), and now NHS with Flip … hmmm.
NHS, one of skateboarding’s largest and most successful manufacturer/distributors, is proud to welcome Flip Skateboards to its brand roster. NHS will utilize its global sales and distribution reach to realize Flip’s full potential as a dominant skateboard brand.
Bob Denike, President and CEO of NHS had this to say,
“The addition of Flip strengthens our position to be the #1 skateboard supplier in the industry. The NHS strategy is simple; strong brands across all categories, innovative product development and working with the best pro skaters; past, present and future. The Flip brand together with the global Flip team are a powerful and welcome addition to the NHS group. And frankly, it’s about f*#king time!”
“I am proud and honored that the rich histories of both NHS and Flip Skateboards have come together. With the support of NHS and the strength of the Flip brand and team it’s a win-win situation. The timing could not have been more perfect!”
Geoff Rowley, Pro Skater, co-owner – Flip Skateboards
Jeremy Fox, Flip founder, says
“This move makes perfect sense for the Flip brand as well as for NHS as our new distribution partner, and we feel that there is great synergy between the two companies both in terms of business direction and commitment to skateboarding.”
