Leading commercial fitness equipment distributor, NovoFit, will combine efforts with global fitness manufacturer, Precor, as of July 1st 2019.
The exciting union will strengthen the NovoFit portfolio and result in greater national coverage of resources for new and existing Australian customers of both businesses. The alliance with Amer Sports’ leading fitness brand, Precor, is an outstanding addition to the existing 25 global brands currently distributed by NovoFit exclusively in Australia.
