A new Chinese tackle manufacturer has been formed and is set to cause a storm in Europe over the next few years. The name – Holly Kudos.
The OEM company has been formed by an alliance of two existing tackle manufacturers; Danyang Holly Fishing, who have been producing carp and match fishing tackle exclusively for European buyers and Dalian Kudos, a manufacturer focused on terminal tackle. While Dalian Kudos has been concentrating in this area, Danyang Holly Fishing are known for larger carp and match fishing products including bivvies, seat boxes, bedchairs and rod pods, etc. Combining these strengths into a single company gives Holly Kudos a huge assortment of products to offer retailers and wholesalers – some of which have already Continue reading “Holly Kudos – New Carp & Match Fishing Tackle Brand”
Today, Tackle Trade World has announced that Okuma is planning to expand its European business with a range of rods. Okuma is a highly recognised reel manufacturer in Europe however, they are not renowned for rod manufacture despite selling volume elsewhere in the world. Importing rods in any numbers to Europe for the first time is sure to raise the brand’s profile here in the UK.
TTW believes that we can expect to see a high profile branding campaign from Okuma in the new year and that this move will coincide with that.
Okuma has its manufacturing plant based in China with a considerable resource of 2,000 employees. In addition, they have a research and development plant in Taiwan, so they definitely have the ‘grunt’ to make this happen. I would initially expect to see rods that translate well across international boundaries (such as spinning rods for example) before we see any region specific rod genres, like carp rods.
We look forward to see what the new year brings.
