Trust Performance chiude

15

Brutta notizia da Trust Perfomance, produttore di forcelle a leveraggi come la “The Message”. A causa del coronavirus hanno avuto difficoltà di approvvigionamento dai fornitori orientali subito dopo il Capodanno cinese (fine gennaio) ed ultimamente non sono più riusciti ad arrivare ai capitali necessari per poter riprendere la produzione. Per questo motivo annunciano di chiudere l’azienda con effetto immediato. Chi avesse acquistato un loro prodotto, in caso di bisogno di assistenza, faccia affidamento al distributore nazionale.

Di seguito il comunicato ufficiale.

We started Trust Performance in 2015 with a vision of building products that bring spirited outdoor athletes more fun and camaraderie. Our core focus from the outset was on reimagining and re-defining suspension technology; at first in mountain bikes with other industries thereafter. As you might imagine, our plans hinged on raising multiple rounds of capital to fuel our ambitions for incredible design, engineering, manufacturing and customer/dealer support.

2019 was a breakthrough year for Trust. We surpassed 1,000 units sold, we saw steep growth in dealer and distributor sales, and we saw four of our best-ever sales months at the end of the year. We had great momentum based on key demand metrics, brand awareness and community enthusiasm, .

But 2020 brought a number of unexpected factors, starting with the shut-down of key parts of our Asian supply chain following Chinese New Year due to coronavirus. In February, demand slowed considerably as macro fears about the economy started to rise. Then, finally, severe negativity in the investment markets shut down our ability to gain access to capital. This was at a point where we needed increased liquidity to carry us through a critical moment in our business. It all added up to a perfect storm that slammed right into us.

As a result of the overwhelming effects of the coronavirus and evaporated capital markets, it’s with incredible disappointment and a heavy heart that, effective immediately, Trust Performance is taking pause and suspending operations until we address our capital needs. We are utterly and completely gutted. We have given every waking hour over the past few months to find a path forward, but to no avail. Trust Performance, like the rest of the world, will be a different company when life is back to normal.

For those who own a Trust fork and need service going forward, please contact Suspension Syndicate in Salt Lake City, Utah. They are trained and certified as a Trust Performance authorized service center.  Also, many of our distributors are trained on most service procedures and have a selection of small parts as well.

We’re grateful for the community of people who encouraged and supported our unique design and innovative technology. In stepping away, we wish everyone health and safety. These trying times are a great reminder to make the most of the moment with those you enjoy most.

Sincerely,

The Trust Performance Team

  1. Il problema che avranno le nostre aziende fra un paio di settimane...Borrelli stamattina ha detto che lo shutdown con molta probabilità durerà fino a metà maggio. Io temo che per allora molte aziende dovranno chiedere. Mi spiace per trust...

    ....AZZ..... ma veramente questa globalizzazione e questa produzione massiva in Asia è così indispensabile ? Questo articolo spero possa portare in tanti a pensare , ma noi Europei ( ITALIANI ) abbiamo cosi veramente bisogno dei lontani amici asiatici ..... Riusciremo a cambiare qualcosa in meglio per le nostre terre ? ..... Speriamo di crescere tutti da questa "FACCENDA" , io nel mio piccolo sto acquistando più responsabilmente .....
    Tra l'altro questo tipo di leveraggio fu visto proprio su un mezzo Italiano e pure tanto tempo fa > Vespa Piaggio anno 1946
