MSD Enters Partnership with KV Private Equity Firm

Mountain Sports Distribution, Inc is excited to announce a new partnership with Edmonton’s KV Capital. “We’re extremely excited about the partnership,” says CEO Chuck Gorton. “We’ve had our eyes on the growth and future of the business and with KV’s partnership, those goals are absolutely attainable.”

Gorton started MSD in 2009 and has seen the business grow to one of North America’s top aftermarket powersports distribution company, which was named to the Globe and Mail’s “Canada’s Top Growing Companies” for the past three years.  Says Gorton, “MSD is ready to scale up and better service our dealer partners. Having the support and expertise of KV is going to help us become better than ever.” Gorton will stay on with MSD as CEO and minority shareholder.

No changes are expected for dealer partners as the collaboration commences. “Our focus is on growth, not re-inventing ourselves,” emphasizes Gorton. “We’ve got a great formula here that we’ve built the success of MSD around and we’re going to keep focusing on that – great people, great relationships and great brands.” MSD looks to continue to partner with their keystone brands, build out new relationships and continue to nurture the values and partnerships that continue to make MSD stand out in the powersports market.
