Sports goods company Everlast Worldwide is expanding its licensing business with the signing of three new agreements covering the UK, Paraguay and Chile.

Wilson Imports, covering the UK, has been a licensee of Everlast since 2005, with the new deal designed to deepen the brand's penetration into the UK market.

Meanwhile, Leading Brands, which has worked with Everlast since 2006, will now serve as the company's exclusive licensee throughout Paraguay, having previously worked in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.

And Sportex has expanded its contract with Everlast to include the distribution of boxing equipment throughout Chile.

"From Europe to South America, our licensing partners are seeing and believing the strength of the Everlast brand," said Neil Morton, Everlast CEO.
