Head USA Becomes New Distributor for Palmer Snowboards and Skis

Palmer is very pleased to announce that Head USA will immediately take over the US distribution of Palmer snowboards and its revolutionary new skis that were introduced last November at the Palmer Project in Colorado. Palmer CEO Jürg Kunz stated, “Our new boards and skis will perfectly complement the existing selection of fun, high quality Head products, and we will benefit from Head’s professional sales, customer and distribution services.

Head is very excited about this new partnership and the opportunity to work with Palmer International.  With preseason orders about to start shipping, Palmer dealers will receive the same high quality customer care that Head provides and that has been provided by Palmer in the past. We anticipate a smooth transition this fall.  Head Snowboard Sales Manager Davy Kammer stated, “It’s a perfect fit, both brands are highly focused on innovations and technologies that improve sliding on snow.” “We have the ability to combine our resources and continue to strengthen both brands in the US market.”

Palmer is currently based in Denver, Colorado and Head USA’s offices are located in Norwalk, CT with warehouses in Baltimore, Md.
