“As our product line has grown in popularity, we recognize the need to have a distribution system that allows for growth and reliability in the markets we serve,” says Erik Lundquist, founder and president of Razerhorse, in the recent press release.
Razerhorse will still rely on Farrier Product Distribution (FPD) to manage the products in the U.S. and Canada.
“FPD has the infrastructure in place to add these products to their existing product line and will be able to provide the reliability and customer service levels that will enhance the delivery of Razerhorse shoes and pads to these markets,” says Martin Kerckhaert, president of the Royal Kerckhaert Horseshoe Factory.
Lundquist founded the Razer shoe technology in Sweden in 2003 after battling lameness issues with his own horses. He began searching for an alternative to the steel horseshoe, one that locks the hoof in place. Using gait analysis software and high-speed video, Lundquist was able to develop the Razer shoe using tempered tool steel that flexed with the horse’s hoof.
“We look forward to adding the Razerhorse products to our existing line,” says Dan Burke, president of FPD. “Many of the dealers in our program currently carry these products, and it will be convenient, and provide economies, for them to be able to order from us. For Razerhorse customers who are not currently in our program, we will work closely with them to provide the same level of quality service we have offered during our 30 years of service in this industry.”
