Hot Wheels wins International Distributor of the Year gong from Mongoose

At the meeting Mongoose showed pre-production samples of 2003 BMX and MTBs as well as outlining brand marketing strategies for this year and next.

The distributor meeting was concluded by an Awards Dinner where Russell Merry of Hot

Wheels was presented with the Award for ‘Distributor of the Year’.

"We have had a great year with Mongoose, keeping up with demand was our biggest problem," said Merry.

"Our strength as a company has traditionally been in BMX, but our growth in Mongoose MTB sales has been exceptional this year. We are all very pleased to have had our hard work recognised by Mongoose. We are a small team and every individual has played their part in our success for 2002."
