Hi-Tec Sports has appointed Sports Brand Development as its agent in Belgium and Luxembourg. The company was established three years ago by Patrick van den Bosch, a former high-level executive at Nike and Reebok. Sport Partner reports that Sports Brand Development already represents the K1X and Brekka brands, as well as Nike's boxing and fencing ranges in the Benelux countries. The company has already started selling the Hi-Tec brand and will gradually take over distribution of the Magnum brand of safety boots, owned by Hi-Tec Sports.
