Today plans were announced for the factory move. It is anticipated construction of the new facility will be completed by October 1st.
The new factory will be at located at the South entrance of Estelí on the Pan-American highway. It will include a large production area, tobacco storage facility, state-of-the-art aging room, retail store, cigar lounge and exhibition space. Factory visits can be arranged by appointment. The growth has been rapid, as it was only early in 2015 that Black Label Trading Company announced it was moving into its own factory.
“The little factory that could, is the little factory that did! We are very excited about the expansion to a larger location. Our brands BLTC & BLK WKS have seen tremendous growth since we opened Oveja Negra in 2015 and its time to grow the factory accordingly. The new location will allow us to maintain and slowly increase our production to better serve our expanding customer base. We have always grown organically and kept true to our small batch philosophy, that will not change. The new location will allow us to increase our capacity with enough room to have creative spaces and continue to focus on incorporating our artistic abilities into our products.” stated James Brown, partner at Oveja Negra and Black Label Trading Co.
“This is a tough industry for small companies. It’s hard to get the attention you need to create a premium product. Our goal is to help support other boutique brands and grow the premium-cigar market,” added Brown.
