This partnership aligns perfectly with our mission to provide premium products and services to our customers. With XPO’s expertise in sailing and logistics, we are confident that our customers in France will experience an even higher level of service and convenience.”

Xavier Phelipon, Founder and Managing Director of XPO, excited about the growing relationship said “I am fully pleased with the agreement reached between XPO and ALLEN, which confirms a collaboration initiated at the end of 2017. Allen Brothers fittings have taken off considerably in the world of light sailing and sport keelboats mainly in Anglo-Saxon countries, even becoming a must in some Olympic series such as the 49er. It has become clear in recent years that this boom can be found on the French market. By choosing XPO as its exclusive distributor, Allen Brothers is giving itself the means to better structure its communication and distribution alongside other XPO distribution brands.”

As a result of this partnership, Allen Brothers anticipates greater market penetration and a strengthened presence in France. Both companies are committed to providing the highest quality customer service, ensuring that customers receive the correct products to streamline their sailing experience.
