Coast to Coast General Manager Tony Canta pointed to LCI’s quality products and consistent growth as key factors in the company’s decision to partner with LCI. “Schwintek will be a key feature of our OEM initiative as we will not only assure on-demand service of supply, but also technical training and assistance to all our customers,” said Canta. “We are thrilled to bring this popular and proven innovation to the Australian and New Zealand market.”
Coast to Coast reports positive customer feedback on LCI’s Schwintek in-wall slideout systems and is happy to strengthen the business relationship. “Schwintek has not only been proven in America, we’ve done extensive testing to ensure it will stand up to Australia’s rugged roads,” said Canta. “What’s more, Schwintek is just one example of the extensive LCI line of products that offers us exciting opportunities for innovation in our markets.”
