QuickTrick Alignment, Birmingham, Ala., has aligned itself with two manufacturer reps-True High Performance Sales and BC Sales & Marketing.
True High Performance Sales, established in 1992, is owned and operated by Skeeter and Thomas Jourdan. Skeeter has been involved as a manufacturer’s rep for more than five decades, according to a press release. Thomas (Tommy) Jourdan serves as the SEMA Manufacturer’s Representative Network chairman.
True High Performance Sales covers the Delta region of the US.
“Over the past 50 years I have pioneered many new lines. But QuickTrick Alignment Systems are truly new products, providing a full DIY/shop alignment not offered in the high-performance industry,” said Skeeter Jourdan. “It simplifies a very old problem of aligning the front end without the hassle of certified machinery and calibration issues.”
Meanwhile, Bill Kendrick of BC Sales & Marketing, Inc. became sole owner of the business in 1997 after partnering with Bob Christie until his retirement and buying his portion of the business.
Three years ago, his son-in-law, Brad Lane, joined the team to help with a substantially growing business, the release noted.
“After many years in different segments of the automotive aftermarket, I became a manufacturer’s rep in 1982 working for Pace Sales out of Cleveland, Ohio,” said Kendrick. “Since that time I have been blessed to work with some of the best companies in the automotive industry, and QuickTrick will only enhance that list.”
QuickTrick Alignment started as a garage-based business and has utilized many industry and state resources to build a global brand.
“We are excited to move to our next chapter with Bill, Skeeter and Tommy as part of our QT family,” said Tess Winningham, CEO. “Our next big project is the release of our new QuickTrick SL and SLX line, which we hope to launch through a kick-starter project and release with a bang at SEMA 2014.”
