Clinched Flares expands its operations to US


Westlake Village, CA - The online auto parts sales market is projected to reach $8.89 billion in 2017, representing a 16% increase over the 2016 market value. Clinched Flares has recently expanded its operations and showed its commitment to US and Canadian market by opening a Los Angeles, CA sales office and warehouse.

Andrey Kondukhov, President & CEO states: “Clinched Flares has seen tremendous international growth in the recent years – we now have customers and dealers on all 5 continents but most of our sales growth is coming from US market. Having a local presence in US was the next logical step for our brand. Our new US location will allow us to cut significantly on delivery timeframes, provide better customer service and allow us to have access to the newest vehicles for R&D purposes. This last benefit is crucial for us as our long-term company plan calls for development of more products geared towards US market”.

The new office will be headed by Michael Kazakov – an industry veteran with extensive import\export and international brand development experience. “I’m very excited to work with Clinched Flares and lead their expansion. Los Angeles is the epicenter of US automotive culture and design and this new location will allow us to connect with the customers and our rapidly-growing dealer network. I’ve worked closely with SEMA and SEMA Garage for the last 10 years and the close proximity to SEMA’s Diamond Bar, CA location will also allow us to significantly decrease our R&D timeframes for new product development. We have quite a few new exciting products in the pipeline that will do very well in this market. We have already seen huge interest in the upcoming Ford Mustang widebody kit to be formally released at the upcoming SEMA Show and this is only the beginning” – states Michael Kazakov, Director of Sales & Marketing, US & Canada.

Clinched Flares’ newly-redesigned website offers visitors a collection of high-quality ABS plastic widebody kits for Audi, BMW and Lexus as well as universal fender flares. All parts are designed and manufactured in-house in the state-of-the-art facilities in Eastern Europe. Clinched Flares’ lineup will soon include a highly-anticipated Ford Mustang widebody kit as well as new products for Ford, Chevrolet and Porsche that will give the cars a very original and unique look that “Clinched” vehicles are known for.
