VESPA – THE SCOOTER MAKER – IS LOOKIKNG FOR CONSUMER GOODS AND ACCESSORY LICENSEES

Vespa is looking for licensing deals for apparel and accessories.

The strategy, created by The Beanstalk Group in New York, is an attempt by Piaggio Group Americas—the New York firm that makes and imports Vespa scooters—to widen recognition of the Italian brand, first introduced in the U.S. in the 1960s.

"The equities of Vespa—Italian design, highly stylish, modern, colorful, free-spirited and environmentally sensitive—should translate well to a number of product categories," said Michael Stone, Beanstalk president and CEO.

Products are expected to hit stores in late 2008 and will target mid-tier and higher-end retailers.
