German denim specialist Mustang has launched a Russian branch of the business called OOO Mustang Rus in Moscow. As a result, Mustang will part ways with AG International, which had been distributing the brand on the Russian market for 10 years. Effective immediately, all activities such as distribution, wholesale, retail and franchise businesses will be managed from the new Moscow office. Next to India and China, expansion across Russia with new monobrand stores will be an important focus for Mustang over the next several years. There are already 26 Mustang stores in Russia.
