"Having formed KSGB just two years ago, we are on an aggressive track to become one of the world's leading multi-brand companies," KSGB President/CEO Larry Remington said in a statement. "KR3W and SUPRA are brands that meet the distinctions we are looking for in our portfolio: authenticity, strong brand awareness, a track record of product innovation and opportunities for long-term, global growth. We are excited to join forces with the ONE-Distribution teams and lay a foundation for the future."
