Mport Group and HKS are celebrating the successful completion of a multi-year partnership. Having developed an extensive US footprint for HKS behind its industry-leading marketing, logistics, and customer support, Mport Group officially turns over the keys of these systems to HKS’s fledgling North American Enterprise.

HKS customers will be able to receive this support directly from HKS corporate, while Mport Group will be freed to invest greater focus on developing new partnerships with other premium global brands in North America, as well as its current partners: Kelford, Quaife, and Tokico.

“HKS has been eager to reenter this market and we’ve given them the running start they’ll need,” said Mport Group General Manager Brian Patrias. “We look forward to seeing what the future holds for them in North America,” he continued.

Since 2015, Mport Group has served as the exclusive North American importer and partner of HKS, developing and executing a digital, print and event based marketing campaign, providing comprehensive tech and warranty support for consumers, establishing detailed data for resellers and consumers, and developing a comprehensive distribution and Pro Dealer network that aggressively grew HKS’ market reach.

This decision allows Mport Group to continue and renew its commitment of investment and growth in the exclusive importation of premium global brands.
