This company distributes its own brand of electronic cigarettes and e-liquid vaporizers and accessories which are manufactured to their specifications in China. Distribution is through retail outlets, resellers, and the internet. Gross margins are over 50%. Trademarks are in place. End users like the products for their smart design, good taste, and ease of use. E-cigarettes and e-liquid vaporizers are growing in popularity as a cleaner, low-cost, easy-to-use alternative to tobacco smoking. “If anything, these data suggest that e-cigarettes are replacing the real thing. As one tobacco researcher told The New York Times, “They’re not a gateway in, and they might be accelerating the gateway out.” That cannot be anything but good news from a public health perspective, given the huge difference in risk between vaping and smoking.” From Forbes magazine 4/23/2015 The company is relocatable. Training will be provided. For more information, call Stew Gilgis at Sunbelt Business Advisors. Phone 847-605-1510 ext. 229.
