New identity embraces heritage while signaling a future of broader, modern and more diverse offerings
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Swisher International, Inc., a category leader in the highly profitable OTP category, today announced the next steps in its continuous effort to meet the evolving needs of adult consumers worldwide. Swisher International, Inc. will change its corporate identity to SWISHER, signifying the expansion of the company’s vision, offerings and focus on adult consumer lifestyle. While Swisher has always been anchored around its loyal adult consumers, partners and employees, the company is working to build a bold future centered on creativity and innovation.
“We have truly seen an evolution in the tastes of adult consumers, including the preference for lifestyle products within the tobacco category and beyond,” said John Miller, President of Swisher. “We are poised to explore and innovate in new categories while also preserving the legacies and strengths of our existing product portfolios,” Miller added.
Throughout the years, strategic acquisitions, technology improvements and a deep commitment to its partners have all enabled Swisher to maintain its position as an industry leader. Swisher is best known for its legendary Swisher Sweets cigars and classic tobacco brands such as Optimo, Goodies, King Edward and Mail Pouch. Swisher has also worked to expand its offerings with the acquisition of Drew Estate’s premium cigars and other brands in emerging categories. By bringing Hempire pure-hemp rolling papers and Rogue’s portfolio of Nicotine On Demand® products into the lineup, Swisher is setting the standard for inspired enjoyment for adult consumers. This strategic approach expands Swisher’s capability to address shifting adult consumer preferences while continuing to focus on success in the core businesses that customers have relied on for decades.
Swisher’s five strategic businesses – Swisher Sweets Cigar Company (Large & Little/Filtered Cigars); Fat Lip Brands (Smokeless); Drew Estate (Premium Cigars); Hempire (Hemp Products); and Rogue Holdings (Modern Oral Nicotine) – provide category expertise, product knowledge and a focused approach under a renewed purpose for the company. Trade partners will have access to the growth strategies and product innovations that drive expanded success.
With innovation and insights at the heart of Swisher’s focus, the company is introducing a platform for trade partners called Success Simplified. This platform is about action, reliability and programs that deliver shared success.
“The Success Simplified platform showcases our commitment to our wholesale and retail partners,” said John Haley, Senior Vice President, Swisher Sales and Marketing. “This platform will enable us to serve our trade partners in innovative and efficient ways while fulfilling our mission of being the leading source of iconic brands, products and experiences adult consumers desire more than any other,” Haley added.
