HOSSEGOR, France, Sept. 24, 2012 /CNW/ - SurfStitch today announces the
launch of the business' European operations, with the opening of
dedicated headquarters in France including an 8,000sqm purpose built
Recently named Australia's Number 1 Online Retailer*, the move marks a
transition into the next stage of growth and development for
SurfStitch. Having achieved significant success after only 4 years of
operation, with more than 100% year on year growth, SurfStitch founders
Justin Cameron and Lex Pedersen have identified European-based
expansion as a major focus.
Ranked at number 4 in the 2011 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a report on
Australia's fastest growing technology companies, SurfStitch's original
vision of a unique Australian surf and fashion experience has proven to
possess an undeniable global appeal and relevance to the international
online marketplace, selling up to 10,000 items per day.
"We've tried and tested this model in Australia, and have also been
serving customers globally from the very beginning. With SurfStitch now
also located in Europe, customers can expect an even stronger online
retail experience - from a seamlessly designed and stunningly visual
website, to SurfStitch's industry leading shopping and delivery
experience," said SurfStitch's Managing Director Justin Cameron.
Fittingly for a business defined by a love of the coastal and mountain
lifestyle, SurfStitch has set up its European base in Hossegor on the
Atlantic coast of south-west France, an area known for world famous
surf breaks and a one hour drive to the Pyrenees Mountains.

SurfStitch Europe will offer the same leading customer service
proposition that won the company Online Retailer of the Year for 2012
in Australia. 1000's of new styles and 100's of new brands will
constantly be added to the site as the business continues towards its
target of 500 brands in 2013.
