Blumenthal Representation Opens Up New Markets for Zio Sport

AUSTIN, Texas (June 15, 2010) – Veteran children’s clothing representative, Bob Blumenthal, is Zio Sport’s new representative. The addition of Blumenthal allows expansion of Zio Sport’s clothing line into southeast United States, South and Central America, the Bahamas and Puerto Rico.

“We are happy to have Bob Blumenthal in our corner. Bob brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Zio Sport. We are excited about the opportunity of bringing high-quality, children’s active wear to new customers, “ said Mindy Kratsas, Zio Sport President.

Bob Blumenthal and family have been representing fine children’s clothing manufacturers for more than 85 years.

“We are seeing a move toward sportswear and everyday wear for children. When we saw the quality of the Zio Sport merchandise, we knew we wanted to move in that direction,“ said Blumenthal.

In addition, Blumenthal praised Zio Sport’s “sharp-looking” boys line that includes a tech fleece hoodie and functional utility shorts. “The Zio Sport boys line has an older look. It is more of a big boys look scaled down,” said Blumenthal.

Blumenthal has bilingual offices at the Miami International Merchandise Mart and at the Atlanta Apparel Mart. His market shows are in Miami, Atlanta, Las Vegas and Fort Lauderdale.

About Zio Sport:
Nothing says, “get out and play” like Zio Sport. The Austin, Texas-based company outfits kids around the country with high-quality, active wear for children ages 4-14.

This family-owned company encourages a healthy lifestyle with the simple idea that kids who are comfortable keep playing longer.
