“TELEGRAPH SKATEBOARDS FORMS PARTNERSHIP WITH UNIFIED”
The recently established Telegraph Skateboards, brainchild to skateboard legend Brian Lotti (1st & Hope/ Free Pegasus) has inked a distribution partnership with Unified Skate Supply. Unified will serve as the exclusive manufacturer and distributor for all of Telegraph Skateboards needs over the length of the partnership.
The idea for Telegraph Skateboards to team with Unified is a strategic move on behalf of both parties. Lotti was looking for a distributor based in Los Angeles that would offer enough flexibility for maximum creativity, room for growth and like-mindedness in business ethics, mission and vision. Unified offered just that.
“This partnership makes a ton of sense for our brand. Unified is one of the few distributors located in Los Angeles, so we can develop a close working relationship with them. Marko is an active skateboarder, company owner and entrepreneur who is offering us a ton of support and potential on the business side. We want to do some fun stuff and steadily grow Telegraph as one of the core skateboard companies.” – B Lotti
Unified owner Marko J stated, ”We are stoked to be partners with Telegraph. We have all of the resources available to us to build and grow this great and unique brand. Both shops and kids are looking for something unique and very few brands are offering something different. Brian’s creative vision is new”
Telegraph will initially offer a line of decks, wheels, and shirts. There are plans to develop a full product offering of apparel and accessories by the end of the year. Unified will be fully stocked with the new Spring line of Telegraph products starting March 15th.
Unified Skate Supply was formed in 2009 by long time professional skateboarder and company owner Marko Jasbinsek (Sugar Skateboards /Goldstar Skateboards). Unified was created to serve as a distribution company for a small host of established brands. Unified has recently moved into a new warehouse space in Canoga Park housing all inventory, printing equipment and a hardy sales team.
