Arango Cigar Co. has announced that it has reached an agreement to acquire certain assets and exclusive U.S. distribution rights from Music City Marketing.
Included in that list are Falcon Pipes, Butz-Choquin Pipes, IM Corona Lighters, MCM Pipe Tobacco blends in tubs and a variety of private label Zippos.
In a press release, the acquisition was heralded as being “a perfect fit” by Arron Sissom, president of Music City Marketing. “Michael Gold, president of Arango, has the facility, the infrastructure and the staff to take on this venture. In one way shape or form, Arango has been associated with MCM for many years; they really take care of their customers and work hard to develop relationships,” he added.
Sissom also noted that MCM is working closely with Arango during the transition process to make it as smooth as possible.
“We are continually expanding our portfolio of products for our customers,” Gold said. “MCM provided an important niche for many retailers that we will continue to offer. Arango is known for top notch customer service and one-stop shopping,” he added.
Both companies will have their products on display at next month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in Las Vegas.
