Doug Kahl and Partners drops Yakima
They have dropped Yakima because they were not comfortable with the personnel changes and the direction they were going. They have now picked up Thule in 11 states, including Utah. "The people that are running the company have run off the people that are the company," according to Doug Khal. So what will happen to Yakima? Is the product going downhill?
Yakima is not paying attention to what is needing to happen. My take on this: Thule is going to take down Yakima and Yakima will be bought by someone, maybe Thule.
