Ortlieb, the German manufacturer of waterproof bags and packs, has split its French distribution into two entities, as it did before in some other markets. Cyfac International continues to cover the distribution channel for bicycles in France, whereas a new partner is now in charge of outdoor retailers: ESM Sport, based in Lancin, distributes a wide range of 11 brands in the country including the neckwear of Buff, sports nutrition of Maxim, apparel of Devold, eyewear of Rudy Project and a couple of others.
