Rumors about this merger have been floating around for weeks, but now it's official. I am bummed that I had to find out on Facebook and not from Strother Archery itself, but now I know. Love my Strother bows and wonder if Obsession Bows will keep the staffers or go for new ones. I noticed that Obsession doesn't have a Southern California dealer in place either. Hmmm...
Copied from the Facebook post:
Dennis Lewis, CEO of Obsession Bows, is happy
to announce the Strother Archery brand has been purchased and is moving
to Jeffersonville, Georgia. The Georgia facility will produce and
maintain Strother 2015 and beyond bows while products produced
in 2014 and prior will be serviced by the Sandusky Michigan facility.
This will provide the best service to all current and future Strother
Archery Customers. Moving forward, Strother Archery equipment will be
designed by the original company designer, Kevin Strother. Archers can
expect nothing but great designs for the future.
Strother Archery: Georgia location for 2015 and forward
118 Magnolia St. N
Jeffersonville, GA 31044
Strother Michigan: (2014 and prior)
245 Campbell Rd. Sandusky, MI 48471
Obsession Bows delayed the release of this information to allow
Strother Archery to notify their dealers and staff shooters of this
change. Strother Archery will have a mid-year release for 2015 and
current dealers may continue their dealer agreements. Web site contact
information is being updated and the social media pages will be changing
hands soon. Please bear with us as we make the transition.
