Couplemate signs deal with Bass Pro Shops


Australia-based Couplemate Trailer Parts is hoping to gain market share in the U.S. with a factory-direct product representation of its top-selling product, The Marriage Saver, in Bass Pro Shops retailers throughout North America.

Couplemate, through its newly appointed North American sales headquarters in Reno, Nev., has retained two independent contractors for East Coast and West Coast sales who will support the company's product promotion and sales strategy. Plans are also under way for a major retail show exhibition program involving a mix of new video and point-of-sale displays to promote the product.

The company is now corporately represented in the U.S. and Canada and is no longer affiliated with or distributed by Durasafe Inc. or Kickerfish Industries.
