Cavalier continues to execute their three-year strategic plan to vertically integrate by opening a distribution facility to support its factory and multiple cigar brands, ensuring efficiency and providing new opportunities to locals.
Cavalier Genève Cigars has opened its brand-new distribution facility to directly service its US market retail partners. This is Cavalier’s latest step towards vertically integrating its operations after opening its factory (Fabrica Centroamericana de Tabaco SA) in early 2021. The new distribution facility, Cavalier Premium Cigars HN SA, also includes sales support services and is located in Danlí, Honduras near the factory. The warehouse offers door-to-door service with UPS to all its US retail partners to ensure reliable and fast order fulfillment.
“The growth Cavalier has been experiencing over the last few years and particularly since the factory opening allowed us to start looking to the next steps we had to take towards taking control of our future. The distribution facility, now known as Cavalier Premium Cigars HN SA fits our strategic plan. We will now be able to not only control our flow of product better but also offer customized and personalized support to our trusted partners in the US market – we hired key people for new in-house sales support positions within this new operation,” said Sébastien Decoppet, Cavalier’s founder.
In addition, Cavalier started a partnership with Andrea Paz, a local Honduran artist, who painted a 39-foot-long mural and additional artworks within the office space at the warehouse. These artworks will be showcased during customers’ visits to the facility.
“This is a new step in our involvement within the local Honduran economy and its amazing people. We have a lot more exciting projects on the books that will be realized with Andrea in the near future and look forward to exporting some of her work to cigar aficionados across the world,” said Brian Motola, Sales Director, and partner at Cavalier.
