Fortium’s expansion to capitalize on rapidly growing direct-to-consumer sporting goods industry
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fortium Holdings Corp. (“Fortium”) (OTC: FRTM), today announced the formation of Norr LLC (“Norr”), a wholly-owned Fortium subsidiary, supporting Fortium’s initial entrance into the rapidly growing, direct-to-consumer segment of the broader sporting goods industry in the United States. The creation of Norr marks Fortium’s second expansion into new high-growth markets, following Fortium’s recent entrance into the cannabis industry via the formation of Elysian Premium Corp. (“Elysian”) (see link to the Elysian press release here).
Norr, headquartered in New Jersey, will establish its footprint to specifically target youth sporting categories by employing a direct-to-consumer business model focused on providing high-quality, yet affordable products. Fortium believes it can benefit significantly from the continued migration of commerce away from traditional brick and mortar retail outlets, to on-line vendors, such as Amazon. Norr’s initial product line of skateboards is already available on its website for pre-order. Norr intends to further expand its product offering into a range of additional sporting good categories over time.
Norr has developed a marketing strategy for its products that will focus on developing various types of introductory and instructional content deployed via social media channels. This “how to” content is aimed at increasing awareness and sparking interest amongst various youth categories, encouraging young people to take up learning a new sport using Norr’s products and content.
“We are extremely excited to announce Fortium’s latest expansion with our entrance into the fast-growing, direct-to-consumer sporting goods industry in the United States via the formation of Norr,” stated Richard Horgan, Chief Executive Officer of Fortium. “This is a business model and product line which I have significant experience working in, and our direct-to-consumer focus provides the continued degree of convenience and affordability consumers demand in today’s digital world. We believe that Norr’s initial product offerings are positioned to grow rapidly beyond the world of skateboarding, into a wide range of action sports market opportunities.”
