A little under two weeks after the announcement of Tierra Volcan cigars coming to the U.S. market, the company has now found a distribution partner. Today, RoMa Craft LLC announced that they would become the exclusive U.S. Distributor for Tierra Volcan Cigars. The announcement was made in a press release by both companies
In a press release it was mentioned how the companies have had an on-going connection over the past few years. Over time, the companies built a personal friendship and sharing best practices. Both companies realized they had plenty in common in terms of their mission, values, and product quality. RoMa Craft Tobac and Tierra Volcan Cigars are unusual for small boutique cigar makers in that each own their own factory.
“Our vision is to provide the world’s most memorable cigar experience for consumers,” says Markus Raty, of Tierra Volcan. “RoMa Craft’s supply chain and logistics expertise, combined with their technical execution has consistently resulted in efficiently delivering a high level of service to retailers. We believe both are key components in the realization of this vision.”
“We are very excited to build on the collaborative relationship we have developed over the past few years with Mombacho,” says Skip Martin, of RoMa Craft Tobac. “Leveraging our operational proficiency with their own expertise in blending, manufacturing, brand management and sales, positions Tierra Volcan for success in an extremely competitive market.”
The distribution agreement takes this on-going collaborative relationship to the next level. While Mombacho has its own dedicated sales and marketing team, the partnership adds RoMa Craft Tobac’s logistics, fulfillment and back-office administrative support capabilities.
The partnership will soon be in action as both companies will share a booth at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas later this month.
Update: Due to Trademark ownership, we have modified all references in this story to use Tierra Volcan as opposed to Mombacho Cigars.
