Imagine a company that can conceptualize, create and sell a product in house direct to the consumer. This vertical integration creates multiple layers of profit. A product produced in house adds 35% Gross profit to the bottom line, also add the typical 25% to 30% gross profit made by a distributor to our bottom line; Then add the 20% to 35% retail markup. This is where our acquisitions of e-commerce sites is key to profitability. Our ability to sell direct to the consumer provides multiples levels of profit most brands miss out on. ALL kept in house.
