Ben Hogan legger ned

Ben Hogan - som har hatt rimelig bra suksess i USA med sine nye køller - har sagt opp 100% av de ansatte.

Det spekuleres i om de vil starte opp igjen med ny organisasjon. Det sier litt om hvor vanskelig det er å tilpasse seg en ny hverdag i golfindustrien.

Kommer nok overraskende på mange. I går postet Dormy at de solgte det første BH settet til en fornøyd kunde.

Kommuniserte med dem senest i romjula, Ingen indikasjoner på at noe slikt skulle skje.

Vel får vente på tilbakemeldinger.

Fikk denne på mail:

Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company announces reorganization and restructuring - maintains commitment to building highest quality and most precise golf equipment in the world

Fort Worth, Texas: The Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company announced today that it is going through a period of re-tooling and right-sizing in an effort to become more nimble and profitable in the highly competitive golf equipment business.

The Company has voluntarily implemented a reorganization initiative to minimize expenses and streamline the operation. This included the reduction of a large percentage of the exempt and non-exempt workforce, some of whom will be rehired as contract employees. The company has not declared bankruptcy nor been foreclosed upon, and remains in the business of producing and selling the highest quality and most precise golf equipment in the world.

"Reports of our death have been greatly exaggerated", said Scott White, President and CEO of the Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. "While our organization does not look the same today as it did in 2016, we are confident that the changes we are making will make us a stronger and better company in the future".

Dette sagt, ingen røyk uten ild. Så noe skjer, håper bare de får dyttet ut nok køller i alle salgskanaler.

Det er egentlig ikke så mye nytt i pressemeldingen, fordi man hele tiden antok at de kom til å starte på nytt med samme merke, køller osv. Men - færre ansatte og en annen organisasjon.

Som liverglimt sier brenner det nok uansett et eller annet sted. Vanskelig for en forhandler å beholde 100% troen på dem etter dette.
