AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan-based Gibbs Sports Amphibians (Gibbs) continues to expand its Quadski dealer and distribution networks in the U.S. and Internationally.
The company currently has 16 U.S. dealerships with 21 retail outlets and expects to double the number by year's end, according to Neil Jenkins, chairman of Gibbs.
Jenkins reported that Gibbs currently has Quadski dealership outlets in 11 states, including California, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
Gibbs is also establishing an international distribution network with outlets in major regions throughout the world, including Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South America.
Internationally, the company now has established outlets in Argentina, Germany, Japan, Korea, Portugal, Russia and Saudi Arabia. Gibbs began to export Quadskis from its production facilities in Michigan last December.
"Consumer interest in the Quadski and our other high-speed amphibian products has been exceptionally strong from day one," said Alan Gibbs, the company's founder. "We have as many as 23,000 visitors per day on our website, many of them from outside of the United States. As more people get the opportunity to see these high speed amphibians in action, that interest will continue to grow."
The Gibbs Quadski is the world's first high-speed personal sports amphibian. It's capable of reaching speeds of up to 45 miles per hour on both land and water and transitions between the two in five seconds or less.
The Quadski's patented technology includes water jets that are lighter and more compact than standard marine-industry jets and a unique retractable suspension system. The vehicle is powered by a K1300 BMW Motorrad engine.
Gibbs Amphibians is the world's leading developer of High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology platforms for consumer, commercial, humanitarian and military applications. Gibbs Amphibians is a privately held company founded by Alan Gibbs with Neil Jenkins in 1999. It consists of two divisions – Gibbs Sports Amphibians, which designs and manufactures consumer sports amphibians such as the Quadski, and Gibbs Amphitrucks, which develops commercial amphibians for first responder, humanitarian and military use. Gibbs Sports Amphibians is based in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
