Louis Garneau Sports chooses Cossette

Following its recent acquisition of Canadian brands Sugoi and Sombrio from Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B, DII.Al), Louis Garneau Sports (LGS) has announced that it will be working in tandem with Cossette to define a transformation strategy that includes marketing and communications, which will allow the group to fuel its growth on the international stage.

“We’re reinventing ourselves to not only democratize cycling, but also be a disruptive player in the industry, which admittedly can be a bit conservative,” explained Louis Garneau, President and Founder of LGS. “Our goal is to make the bike both a mode of transportation and a lifestyle. Now with a stronger-than-ever portfolio of brands and products, we truly embody a cycling solution that’s relevant for everyone, whether they view biking as a passion, a pastime or just the best way to get to work.”

Capitalizing on the momentum created by the arrival of the second generation of Garneaus within the company, LGS along with Cossette is revamping its business model and repositioning its communications platforms in order to better respond to consumers’ needs and better equip its partners, found in 50 countries around the world. It will be an in-depth transformation for the company that will be applied simultaneously throughout the organization.

“By developing brands’ like Louis Garneau Sports’ ability to provide concrete solutions to concrete problems, we enhance their growth potential and—perhaps more importantly—we stimulate their internal and external vitality”, said Alexis Pinard, Strategic Lead and Brand Expert at Cossette.
