HIRZL golf gloves, for the second year in a row as an exhibitor, set an all-time record for golf glove sales at the recently concluded 37th Annual Golf Expo at Haggin Oaks, the nation’s largest golf retailer and the country’s largest and most attended demo day event.
According to Mike Pompei, buyer for Haggin Oaks, HIRZL out-sold the nearest glove manufacturer by a factor of nine to one and set a new all-time record in the event’s 37 year history for most sales of any glove manufacturer.
“We have been carrying the HIRZL glove since the spring of 2010 and we have seen a steady increase in sales every month,” stated Pompei. “Sales were crazy and to see HIRZL once again out-sell every other brand we carry during our Golf Expo was impressive and true testament to how well these gloves perform and how well they are being received by our customers.”
“We are extremely pleased to see our HIRZL gloves do so well with Haggin Oaks and their customers,” said Gary Sheppard, President and CEO of HIRZL North America. “Record sales two years in a row, including a 35% increase over 2011’s record year, indicates the tremendous consumer, green grass and PGA professional support HIRZL has generated. It is further proof that HIRZL‘s awareness is growing as a global pioneer in high performance golf gloves where innovation and precision engineering is at the heart of our philosophy and is supported by a focus on design and top quality production.”
HIRZL, headquartered in Switzerland, with North American operations based in Granbury, TX, is a leading specialist for high performance sports gloves. HIRZL’s focus is solely on gloves with products specifically designed for golf and cycling, which is in contrast to many sports manufacturers with wide ranges of products spanning equipment, shoes and fashion. HIRZL‘s gloves are designed with the latest scientific, technical and ergonomic mechanics data on how sports equipment is used on the hands.
