MotionFox expands listings outside Dublin
Shortlisted in this year's Startup Awards, Dublin-based MotionFox has signed up its first stockist outside the capital – in Ballina, Co Mayo – for its innovative high-viz vest, the FlashBk.
MotionFox has been shortlisted in the Product Startup of the Year and Export Startup of the Year categories in the StartUp Awards, which are being run in association with Vodafone by Startups.ie.
Invented in Ireland, the FlashBk is unique in that it can be worn as a normal vest or expanded to cover the wearer and their bag.
The Ballina stockist is M Hopkins & Sons, one of the longest established family-run bicycle shops in Mayo
“We hope this is the first step towards the wider availability of Motionfox products all around Ireland and we are meeting new potential stockists every week,” said co-founder of MotionFox Rob Quigley.
“May is going to be a hectic month as we are also exhibiting at the Irish Cycling Show in the RDS on May 19 and 20, which is being opened Stephen Roche.”
