LOOKING BACK AT 2019
By Aaron Hartless
In a year that was "doomed" by critics, First Mfg Co kept growing. We introduced a bunch of new styles like the Raider, Kent, Indy, and Ludlow. All of the new items in our line took off and the copycats were left scrambling.
Staying on top of trends and having dedicated employees that understand what the customer needs in riding gear has put us at the top. I want to thank all of the customers that visited our dealers this year. Our dealer network is growing, we are working hard to keep them informed about new products and upgrades we made on our classic designs. Sometimes you guys and girls are helping the shop owners get hip to what's happening in the street, thank you for that.
Living on the road shaking hands and riding with a bunch of y'all is my favorite part of the job. From Daytona to Sturgis and the V-Twin Visionary Tour your feedback and support has made 2019 a year I will never forget. I love fitting someone with a jacket or vest with the right amount of detail thought out by someone that really rides. The look in their eyes when the fit and function makes sense is something I hold close.
I know you have plenty of options out there right now as far as riding gear. So if you are reading this, chances are you have purchased something I have put a lot of time and energy into. Make sure you are spending your money with a brand that understands riders needs. Thanks for choosing FMCo, we have a lot of new stuff in the works so spread the word and keep the rubber side down.
