GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Electronic Cigarettes International Group, Ltd. (OTCBB: ECIG), a global marketer and distributor of electronic cigarette and vapor products whose brands include FIN, Vapestick, Victory, VIP, and others, today announced that it has introduced its FIN Advanced Vaping System® to more than 1,200 Murphy locations in 23 states. Murphy had previously carried legacy FIN products in approximately 50% of its locations. Additionally, ECIG showcased the FIN line of vaping products at Murphy’s Annual National Managers Meeting, January 18-20 in Orlando.
The Advanced Vaping System from FIN® is the first of its kind in vaping, and is the only vaping system that comes with pre-filled V-tanks, avoiding the hassle, mess and risk of filling standard vaping systems with open e-liquids. The system also comes with a larger universally compatible battery that provides greater vapor production relative to traditional vaping products and an ‘all-day vape.’ Not only is it an easier and more convenient alternative to other vaping systems, it provides both retailers and consumers the confidence and consistency eliminating any perceived concerns about handling open e-liquids.
“We are very excited to add Murphy USA to our impressive and growing roster of convenience retailers now carrying the FIN Advanced Vaping System,” said Brent Willis, CEO of Electronic Cigarettes International Group, Inc. “Having access to leading retailers like Murphy is a key part of our growth strategy.”
Murphy introduced eight SKUs to all locations, including Bold Tobacco and Bold Menthol Starter Kits, Bold Tobacco, Bold Menthol, Cherry, Vanilla, Zero Nicotine and Cinnamon.
