Husqvarna NA Continues to Grow

2012 Husqvarna Motorcycles North America

Just as its parent-company BMW, which reported record-breaking sales so far in 2012, Husqvarna has shown positive growth both worldwide and in North America.

Since joining the BMW Group in October 2007, the Husqvarna company was restructured for growth. And the work is paying off; for the first quarter of 2012, Husqvarna has reported a 40-percent increase in worldwide sales over the same quarter in 2011.

And from January through April, Husqvarna Motorcycles North America (HMNA) deliveries were up 43 percent over the same period of 2011.

Kris Odwarka (Husqvarna Motorcycles North America President) says: “On top of excellent worldwide growth, it’s great to see the U.S. numbers improving. We can attribute our market share increases almost directly to Husqvarna’s overall growth coupled with our expanding dealer network in North America.”

Throughout 2011, HMNA reported a growth in dealerships. And so far in 2012, Husqvarna dealers in North America are up over 15 percent.

Kris Odwarka says: “It’s not the sheer quantity, but the quality and relevance of the dealerships now on board with Husqvarna Motorcycles that are taking us in the right direction.

“Dealers are seeing the positive changes within the HMNA infrastructure, like our re-worked parts distribution and excellent support staff. Together with our retail partners, we’ve accomplished a lot over the last 12 months and it’s very rewarding for all of us, but especially Husqvarna riders and owners, to benefit from the fruits of our labor.”
