CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After establishing a logistics network including fulfillment partnerships, and meeting all of the regulatory requirements for distribution in Europe, Mace Security International Inc. (MSI) is launching distribution to the European Union (EU). MSI completed the first Vigilant brand test model shipment to our European distribution center and successfully sold the first product in Europe this week.
"International e-commerce is one of the pillars of Mace's continued global expansion," said David Happe, EVP of e-commerce for MSI. "We are excited about the potential for incremental revenue and profit through this high velocity new sales channel.”
Following that successful test, several additional models will be activated for shipment to Europe throughout March, including various Mace Brand items and Vigilant Personal Protection Systems alarms.
“We are in a unique position for rapid expansion, due to the fact that our electronics products all meet the high performance standards and regulatory requirements for marketing in the EU,” said Happe. “We see this e-commerce expansion potential in the EU for Mace products that could some day rival our United States online efforts."
Mace Brand and Vigilant Personal Protection Systems alarms products will be initially available to customers in France, Italy, Spain, Germany and the UK with additional planned international distribution expansion later in 2018.
