These new distributors, and the markets they represent, are crucial to our global expansion plans, supporting the introduction of Dr. Cool’s new product lines including cooling accessories, an expanded wrap line and sports medicine collection.”

In 2015, the company plans to launch cooling apparel and accessories globally, including shirts and polos, sleeves, towels, headwear, wristbands and headbands.

Coolcore director of marketing Nick Skally said, “As consumers become more sophisticated in their product knowledge, they demand more performance from their apparel and accessory items.” He added, “Our patented, chemical-free textile innovations provide on the go relief and are being very well received across a variety of market segments.”
