We believe this partnership will make an important difference for both Eco-Cigs and KDI, and we appreciate their confidence in our company and our brands.”
Kimball Smith, president of KDI, also is excited about the partnership: “We are extremely pleased to be working with Eco-Cigs—a class organization. And our first sales results with Sapphyre and Sapphyre Hookah are very positive,” he said. “What’s more, Eco-Cigs’ high-quality products are guaranteed not only by our company, but by Eco-Cigs too.”
“And as a company new to the e-cigarette business,” Kimball continued, “we are comfortable that Eco-Cigs products are marketed solely to the 18-and-over market, and that they offer consumers a real alternative to traditional cigarettes.”
