The real substance of our business is our relationship with our suppliers. We’ve been working with the present group anywhere from 3 to 33 years, with the average being 15 years.
We deal with extremely smart and talented people in both South America and Asia, who can thrive in far harsher business climate than we ever could. Every small, family-owned company we deal with is a determined, creative, ingenious survivor, and we never lose sight of the fact that these people, as much as us, are Invisible World. And every one of them has a story.
