VANCOUVER, BC – June 26th, 2017: Origin Distribution and Rayne Longboards are proud to announce a new agreement under which all Rayne products will be manufactured and distributed worldwide out of the Origin Distribution warehouse and factory in Washington state.
The partnership marks the beginning of a new chapter for both Rayne and Origin alike.
Since being founded in 2004, Rayne has widely been known as an industry-leading innovator in board design. With Origin managing manufacturing and distribution, the Rayne team will be provided the opportunity to directly focus on the product innovation and progressive development that defines the brand. Moving warehousing to the US will offer better access for North American dealers, as well as the added convenience of online ordering utilizing the Origin b2b webstore infrastructure. The core management team at Rayne will remain intact and a physical location will be maintained in Vancouver for R&D to continue their long heritage of bringing radical new ideas to market.
With the addition of the Rayne product line, Origin now offers one of the most robust longboard skateboard product selections available. Rayne is a complementary addition to a brand catalog that already includes DB Longboards, Cloud Ride Wheels, Atlas Truck Co and Predator Helmets. Origin will also now be offering Vicious Griptape to US customers. Rayne’s long history of product innovation, superior manufacturing and community support align perfectly with the goals of the Origin team and both parties are excited to move forward with a partnership rooted in these shared values.
