Our Brick and Mortar History
Incorporated in 1977, Leaders Inc. began as Leaders Printing Company as a specialty print shop. In 1980, Leaders also ventured into design, manufacture and distribution of hearth products and established a nationwide sales and distribution network. In addition, Leaders Heat Products Company opened a retail operation on Red Arrow Highway in Mattawan, MI. With the easing of the energy crisis in the early 1980's, Leaders looked to seasonal warm weather products to offset the retail operation's lull during the summer months. In 1982, Leaders entered the marine business with the Johnson Outboards and Smokercraft Boat brands. Leaders remained in the hearth products retail business until 2003. Since the mid-80s, Leaders has added to and expanded its portfolio of quality marine and powersports vehicles known throughout the Midwest as the premier outdoor recreational dealership.
In 2014, the family of owners began discussions of a new BIG dream. They wanted to create a premier motorcycle dealership with powerful, unique and competitive brands such as Indian, Victory, Can-Am Spyder and the Polaris Slingshot. In 2016, plans were drawn up, approvals were gathered and earth moving has started to make this dream of speed, open air driving and powerful performance a reality. Indian Motorcycle of Kalamazoo will open in 2017 on the same campus as Leaders RPM. It is owned and operated by the same family and shares the same values that have made Leaders successful over the past 35 years.
