Equip Deutschland, the subsidiary of the British company that owns Lowe Alpine, Rab, Outdoor Designs and Integral Designs, has merged the distribution of the Rab and Lowe brands in Switzerland: Flagrant Sports Trading, the long-time distributor of Eagle Creek in the country, has taken on Rab's distribution, in addition to that of Lowe Alpine. The Swiss company, which was founded in 1995, is run by Gabriela Stadtmann. Shortly before the Swiss appointment, the Munich office, which is in charge of the three German-speaking countries, picked Markus Kleissl and Klaus Hoinigg as the new sales agents for both brands in Austria.
