I really do hope they plan on keeping the manufacturing in Madison, WI. Was nice to have a US made trainer company to support.
I also hope they remain in Wisc… I love my H2 and have heard mostly positive feedback from other Saris trainer users. IMHO the Hammer series of trainers is as good or better in performance, accuracy and durability with any or the other high end smart trainers.
Saris to be acquired by C&A Global…
Based in Edison, New Jersey, C+A Global is a worldwide manufacturer and online retailer of consumer products and electronics. Saris is a longtime manufacturer of bike racks, trainers, storage racks and public bike systems and infrastructure.
Not teribly encouraged by this based on what I see in their current portfolio of consumer products.
In addition to acquisitions, C+A Global focuses on the design, manufacturing, and sale of a variety of consumer products. It has developed product lines that include Kodak photo printers, Ivation dehumidifiers, Lyxpro audio equipment, Sunny & Fun outdoor toys, and Arf Pets products. This has given C+A Global a presence on direct-to-consumer third-party sales platforms Amazon, Walmart, Target, Wayfair, and Chewy.
