NEW YORK – August 20, 2019 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Mi-One Brands is No. 721 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Mi-One Brands was started in 2008 fueled by the ambition of improving the lives of adult smokers by creating less harmful and more stylish alternatives to cigarettes. We have grown by leaps and bounds since then, introducing new and innovative products, and our efforts have not gone unnoticed.
“For the fourth year in a row, we’ve been awarded a place among the Inc 5000, and this year we are #721, our best finish yet. It’s amazing to think we’ve grown 607%. It’s such an honor to be recognized for our hard work by appearing yet again on this prestigious list. We’ve come so far in the last few years, and we are excited to keep growing and serving the needs of the adult consumer,” says Mi-One Brands Co-Founder Geoff Habicht.
One of the greatest strengths of Mi-One Brands is that we are, in fact, an American company. This is a rarity in our industry, where most products are manufactured by companies based overseas. That can make it difficult to know if you’re getting a quality product.
But when you buy from Mi-One Brands, you have the satisfaction of knowing our products were made with you in mind and backed by award-winning customer service.
All of our products are designed and engineered in Phoenix, Arizona, creating jobs for our hard-working team as well as providing an economic boost that our industry needs. We are proud to contribute to the American economy in a way that makes such a large impact.
While that sounds like an easy task, don’t be fooled. The FDA has imposed strict regulations over the last few years, trying to crack down on the vaping industry. We follow those regulations to the letter, committed to the safety and satisfaction of our customers.
Not only that, but import duties have gone from 3% to 28% over the past few years, tightening the financial belt in a move that has already closed many businesses.
But here at Mi-One Brands, we’ve turned our challenges into strengths. We’re not afraid to take risks and to innovate, despite pressure from all sides. After all, what do you get when you put enough pressure on coal? A diamond.
No matter what happens in the future, Mi-One Brands is ready for it. We are so grateful to the hundreds of thousands of fans we’ve accumulated over the last few years—it is humbling to play a part in improving the lives of our customers and their families.
It means the world to fulfill our dream of bringing cutting-edge and stylish vapes to adult consumers around the globe, and we are by no means finished in our journey. We are excited to continue growing and make the Inc 5000 list for the fifth year in a row!
With the upcoming release of the Wi-Pod as well our new biodegradable pods, we are always finding new ways to innovate and provide our customers with the latest and greatest devices. Not to mention, we always have new and stylish lines coming to out to please all your senses. Look to bright things in the future from Mi-One Brands.
