Global golf brand Srixon has extended its 12-year partnership with Import Services for a further three years.

The extension ensures Import Services continues to provide Srixon Sports Europe with port-centric retail logistics from its Southampton base, handling warehousing, order processing and distribution of clubs, bags, balls and accessories.

Srixon, owned by Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd is one of the largest golf equipment manufacturers in the world, positioned at the forefront of golf technology developed over the past 80 years.

Srixon cite the unique port-centric location and bonded status of the warehouse as key points of difference assisting both supply chain efficiencies and cashflow. Additional benefits gained include speed to market and the innovations developed in partnership with Import Services, including fast-track operations, 24/7 information flow, the installation of dedicated conveyors to help streamline product arriving at the warehouse and purpose-designed racking to fit Srixon’s goods.

“Srixon has evolved over the years and our solid partnership allows us to continue to work closely, adapting processes to meet the dynamic needs of our Client. We are thrilled to continue with Srixon, extending our service commitments beyond 12 years into a new and exciting period based at Import Services’ expanding Southampton container port site. There is much to look forward to working with such a great team at Srixon in this promising period of growth ahead,’’ comments Mike Thomas, Client Services Director with Import Services.

“We initially secured the Srixon partnership by improving speed to market significantly and providing CFSP services, which enable cash flow benefits from holding stock under bond, deferring VAT and Duty until after the product is sold,’’ continued Mike.

“Forward thinking, fast-paced businesses such as Srixon, recognise the edge gained by moving products to market swiftly and meeting the demands of discerning customers. #

“Srixon is also set to benefit from a consolidation of services at our expanding flagship DC adjacent to the container berths at Southampton port, which will be in full swing from next season, driving a game-changer for our Clients.”
