Decathlon Philippines Inc.
Decathlon is one of the largest sporting goods retailers in the world. It was established by Michel Leclercq in 1976 and aims to make sports affordable for everyone. To meet this objective, it has begun manufacturing its own “passion brand” products, including badminton rackets and high-tech scuba diving equipment.
Despite its international success, independent sporting goods retailers in France have found it hard to compete with Decathlon. In 2008, Decathlon’s sales exceeded those of all competitors in France.
