STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (PRWEB) April 09, 2018
Effective April 5, 2018, SmarterLife Products LLC has signed a definitive Asset Purchase Agreement for the selected assets of Higher Gear Products LLC, an American branded and private label manufacturer of automotive accessories. The assets include, but are not limited to, inventory, intellectual property, online marketplace seller agreements, and its customer base.
"We are pleased that Higher Gear Products is now a part of the SmarterLife family of brands," says its President & CEO, Tim DePuy. "This acquisition enhances SmarterLife's product offering as well as being complimentary to our existing brands including SmarterLife Products and Emerald Mountain Outfitters. It also expands our distribution and sourcing capabilities overseas. I look forward to working closely with Bart Konouvsky, President and CEO of Higher Gear Products, who I personally feel has been an exciting and innovative online marketing force over the past several years.
"Higher Gear Products manufacturers an industry leading line of trunk organizers used in cars, trucks and SUVs. It also offers a compact sized first aid kit that is suitable for vehicles, but also for the home, dorm room, and business place. Several new products are under development at this time, which we are very excited about, too," adds DePuy.
"SmarterLife Products and Higher Gear Products sell on the major online marketplaces including Amazon, Wal-Mart and eBay, so the synergies are obvious and makes the integration of our organization relatively easy," adds Konouvsky.
Based in Steamboat Springs, CO, SmarterLife Products® sources or creates the very best lifestyle products for people who want to live smarter. The company was started when founder Tim DePuy realized that it was hard to find purposefully made lifestyle products that were of the highest quality and designed with smart functionality in mind. While available in the marketplace, no one had brought them together into one place, which was the impetus for the creation of the company.
