Villiger Cigars continues its growth in the U.S. marketplace, as a distribution agreement has been reached with JMG International Inc. This agreement represents for Villiger a new and very strong distribution channel, on the West Coast. JMG International Inc. has deep rooted relationships, with over 1,000 retail shops, throughout California, Washington, and Oregon. JMG International Inc. will begin distribution of Villiger’s portfolio of premium-handmade and machine made cigars in the states of California, Washington, and Oregon on September 10, 2018.
President of Villiger Cigars North America Rene Castañeda, said: “JMG International Inc. over the span of 22 years has become one of the most respected, and well–known distributors of premium cigars on the West Coast. We look forward to a fruitful partnership that will help spread the Villiger lifestyle to a larger audience.”
President of JMG, Charles J. Janigian stated: ”Like a fine cigar, JMG believes in solid slow growth with manufacturers who value old world traditions. Villiger Cigars which was established in 1888 certainly fits our values. In saying that, we feel it an honor and privilege, to have been selected as Villiger’s west coast distributor and look forward to working with Rene Castañeda and the Villiger team.”
About JMG International Inc.:
Founded in 1996 as a cigar brokerage company, JMG International, Inc. grew slowly over many years to become one of the Premier Premium Cigar & Pipe Tobacco Distributors in California. JMG has been dedicated to serving retail tobacconists since its founding. Today that tradition continues with a dedicated sales staff that has experience in all facets of the business.
JMG has always valued the investment its customers have invested in their brick and mortar businesses and, thus, has never developed an internet presence nor sold its products via a mail order catalog directly to consumers. That practice continues today.
