CEO Niels Bjerregaard, Elvstrøm Sails explains, “Over the past years we have worked steadily to increase our presence on the North American market, and we are happy to announce that we are now also present in this great area. To us it is vital to partner with an experienced and passionate team, and that is exactly what we have found in American Cruising Sails.”
AJ Miceli, President of American Cruising Sails says, “We started our company with a passion for sailing and have developed our business into a successful sail loft. We are proud to join with a great company like Elvstrøm Sails. Our relationship takes our company to the next level and allows us to expand our offerings across the board, from entry-level sails to cutting-edge innovations in cruising and racing sails for boats of all sizes. American Cruising Sails is also pleased be a service point for sailors with OEM Elvstrøm sails currently on their boats.”
“I very much look forward to the cooperation and we have already had the pleasure of welcoming the Great Lakes team here at our Loft in Aabenraa Denmark for training. Being represented locally is important to grow the Elvstrøm Sails awareness on the North American market and now we have added yet another crown to our map”, Niels Bjerregaard continued.
