We would like to be clear that Hobbico has not purchased HPI, HPI’s assets, or the rights to any HPI products. Hobbico/Great Planes Model Distributors have simply purchased the necessary product inventory to enable them to provide the service levels required from an exclusive distributor in such a large market area. Their comprehensive distribution facilities will ensure fast and effective supply of the entire HPI product line.
As the exclusive North American distributor, Hobbico will also be providing first-class customer service utilizing their extensive facilities and knowledgeable staff at their headquarters in Champaign, Illinois. The customer service facility will be operational for the HPI product range beginning March 1st, 2013.
HPI USA will retain its headquarters in California, where they will continue to develop market-leading products and maintain relationships with their high-profile corporate partners. HPI Europe will handle centralized purchasing and logistics operations, resulting in more efficient accessibility of global product demand. These combined efforts will provide North American shops and customers better and faster access to HPI’s kits, spares and support.
This exciting partnership will enhance HPI’s presence within North America by giving both companies the opportunity to concentrate their efforts on their own specialized areas of business.
HPI’s dedication to product development, marketing collaborations, and their distribution partners will ensure HPI will remain the front runner in the worldwide RC market.
