Huge, huge news from Britax today! The world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s car safety seats and strollers have announced that they have purchased BOB, a big name in the jogging stroller sector.
This is super exciting for the present as well as the future. Not only will Britax car seats be compatible with BOB strollers, but I’m sure we’ll see some interesting, new and innovative products coming up in the next year or so.
“Families want products that fit their lifestyles,” said Karl Kahofer, CEO of BRITAX Child Safety, “and BRITAX is committed to developing products and technologies that provide safe mobility and comfort for children around the world. This commitment is reflected in the design and engineering of all our products — especially our B-Series strollers and accessories.
“We’ve admired for some time BOB’s ingenuity and commitment to customers and are convinced that its products, customer service, and business ethics make it a natural fit for BRITAX. This purchase reinforces BRITAX global leadership in child safety and mobility, and is fully in line with our international growth strategy. We have no plans to change the BOB name; in fact we are excited to expand the BOB product range globally.”
BOB cofounder and CEO, Roger Malinowski, was just as thrilled with the acquisition and commented saying:
“When we started this company more than fifteen years ago, we simply wanted to design and manufacture the world’s best single-wheel bike trailers, and later, the world’s best strollers for active, sports-minded parents. When you look at the thoughtful engineering behind the BRITAX stroller line and the revolutionary design behind its car seats, you can see why our two companies will fit well together.”
Can. Not. Wait. to see what’s in store!
