FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading global work wear brand Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. announces the launch of Dickies.mx, a site providing Dickies brand information to the company's customer base in Mexico. Through the creation of the Spanish language site, Dickies hopes to encourage international access to Williamson-Dickie's global family of products and companies, including the brand's licensees; many of which are available for purchase in Mexico.
The site includes links to the Williamson-Dickie global corporate site; Spanish media coverage about Williamson-Dickie and the brand's history in Mexico; a description and photo of the Guadalajara distribution center; and videos and images of Dickies' brand activities in sponsorships, music, action sports and professional bull riding. While not an e-commerce destination, the site features a store locator which lets customers know where they can buy Dickies products for personal and corporate use.
"Williamson-Dickie is excited to connect international consumers with the Dickies brand," says Matthew McCartin, head of marketing for Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. "Mexico is an important market for Dickies with immense growth potential."
Williamson-Dickie's current presence in Mexico has been established for over 30 years through more than 250 authorized, independent resellers throughout the country; some of whom have sold the brand for three generations. By communicating via Dickies.mx and content marketing to consumers in Mexico – from the company's strong work wear heritage to its presence in lifestyle activities and sponsorships around the globe – Dickies anticipates tremendous future growth within Mexico.
"As Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. celebrates its 90 year history, it is an ideal time to recognize the importance of the Mexico market," says Moine West, Williamson-Dickie's vice president and general manager of sales and distribution for Mexico. "Dickies.mx will play a crucial role in increasing our involvement with consumers in that market."
