Big News from Ape Offroad
It's an exciting time at Ape Offroad! As you'll see in the press release below, we've been acquired by Nivel. Our business is booming right now! We're working furiously to fulfill orders as fast as we can. Nivel is already adding value by supplying us material that we were having a hard time getting our hands on due to material shortages. Their buying power is helping!
At our facility in Flemmingsburg, KY we're going to be completely focused on manufacturing. Over the course of the next month we'll be transitioning order processing to Octane Ridge – Nivel's distribution arm of the UTV division. That means we'd like to get you set up as an Octane Ridge dealer as soon as its convenient for you and encourage you to place orders through the Octane Ridge website or to call them on the phone at 816-708-0201. A sales rep may contact you to assist with the process. Octane Ridge has got a big assortment of products and can help make life easier for you and supply you with more of the things you need. It'll free up our staff here in Flemmingsburg to stay focused on getting more product shipped faster.
You're probably aware that we recently changed our name from Over Armour to Ape Offroad. Over the course of the next month we're going to be changing it again to Falcon Ridge – a new brand that Nivel is starting that will have a bigger product selection and major marketing support in the future – much more than Ape Offroad could have done when we were an independent company.
If you need customer service, parts, warranty, or other help please continue to call us here in Flemmingsburg at 606-845-7439.
I'm definitely sticking around and I'm excited about growing the business like crazy!
Thanks for your business and support!
