Vectrix To Relaunch At 2010 International Powersports Dealer Expo


Vectrix has emerged from backruptcy after being purchased by GP Batteries. Their official relaunch will take place at the International Powersports Dealer Expo on February 12 – 15 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The press release issued by Vectrix USA states Vectrix has already started shipping parts and products and is planning the relaunch to let customers know they plan to grow. Interestingly the press release states part of this growth will into “other vertical professional markets”. I will post clarification on what this means when I get it.
