Finest Brands International, the company behind the iconic, trusted Champion and Toggi brands, has returned with major plans for the rest of 2020 and beyond.
Sarah-Jane Fedarb, Managing Director at Finest Brands commented “The coronavirus pandemic has been devastating to many individuals and many sectors of the economy and the health and welfare of our employees and customers remains our number one priority. As business starts to return to a new normal, we are delighted that all of our factories, offices & warehouses are back and in full swing. We are of course observing social distancing and hygiene policies throughout. Helping our stockists is very important to us, and we are doing everything we can to support those who have supported us over many decades.”
“Riders are now back in the saddle, competitions are resuming and shops are reopening and we have experienced a considerable surge in orders, especially for our newly launched products, in both Champion & Toggi. Therefore we find ourselves in the fortunate position of now needing to increase production to cope with demand! Our office team and Area Sales Managers are in touch with our stockists, to keep them posted regarding production timelines and availability, and many of our team are working overtime to help fulfil orders.”

We are in the fortunate positive position of needing to expand our team. We have already recruited new staff to facilitate increased production to satisfy demand and our recruitment is ongoing. We are now looking to recruit experienced, enthusiastic and energetic team players across a wide range of areas, including customer service, sales, marketing, social media, graphic design, product design, production, warehousing…it’s all hands on deck!”
