Can-Am's expansion in Ireland continues with Kilkenny Quads

Wednesday 21st March 2018

Kilkenny Quads, an experienced All-Terrain (ATV) and Side by Side Vehicle (SSV) dealership based in Kilkenny, is joining Bombardier Recreational Products' (BRP) UK and Ireland authorised dealer network as its first dealership based in the Republic of Ireland. This new partnership is part of Can-Am off-road's ongoing expansion plans to increase its share of the utility market in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Established in 2010 by Paul Nolan, Kilkenny Quads currently employs five people with the potential to add more staff in the future as the agreement to take on the Can-Am Outlander and Traxter ranges will strengthen its product portfolio, enabling the business to grow. The addition of the vehicles will allow the dealership to offer its customers, both on a local and national level, the widest range of units to align with their requirements.
All BRP's vehicles are manufactured to a very high standard from the Rotax engines which power them to the innovative designs that improve the handling, comfort and ease of use when out on the trailer or towing or hauling goods and equipment. 
Mike Loach, BRP commercial manager UK & Ireland, says, "The Irish market for utility ATVs and SSVs is one of untapped potential and we are delighted to welcome on board Kilkenny Quads. Paul and his team understand their customers' requirements, and we're pleased that they chose Can-Am to help them take the next step to realise their growth plans. We look forward to supporting them as their business grows and for the team to assist us in expanding our market share in the utility sector, bringing more Irish users into the Can-Am family."

Paul Nolan, Kilkenny Quads owner, adds, "When we found Can-Am's products, it was not at a show but while I was on holiday in Spain. The thing that stood out for me was their rugged design and first-class drive quality. My sons David and Derek are the driving force behind the business, so once we had completed our research, we decided to take on Can-Am's utility range. The reason for signing on with the brand was quite simple, we felt that the models available best suited our customer base and the specifications they are looking for in an ATV or SSV. We're confident the brand will assist us in continuing the growth we have experienced year on year since the business opened."
ATV line-up 
The Can-Am Outlander combines power, reliability and handling to offer a workhorse ATV that can handle multiple terrains and situations with ease.
The Can-Am Outlander PRO range has been designed by BRP to combine the efficient performance of the Can-Am Outlander with the power of a Rotax engine, offering a vehicle that can handle the rigours of any situation put in front of it. The ATV is available with the single-cylinder, liquid-cooled 450 or the new 570 V-Twin engine, which has been designed by Rotax engineers to offer the rider excellent torque and power when travelling up the side of hills or towing and hauling cargo on the flat.
SSV line-up
The new Tough, Capable and Clever Can-Am Traxter Utility Side by Side vehicle has been designed from the ground up to establish new standards in terms of torque, power and versatility for users in the utility sector.
