About Our Team
We partner with brands, large and small as a turn key solution to their Amazon needs.
We were founded in 2014 by Austin T. Keller and Alexander V. Johnson.
We quickly added Benjamin Johnson as our COO and now have a team of full time employees and warehouse associates. We are able to stay lean leveraging Amazon’s fulfillment system.
Our business focuses on building long term partnerships with strong, growing brands. We love it when an outside rep can become so valuable they feel like an extra employee. That’s what we strive to do for our partners!
We started selling products on our website in 2014 to raise money for a different business idea (which, looking back now, it's probably a blessing that idea didn't work out).
After selling on our website for a while, we had a rep make mention he had an account doing “half a million a month on Amazon.”
Puzzled, we asked, “Do you mean half a million a year?”
“No”, he said. “Half a million a month.”
We knew we had to learn the platform as malls and online stores were already starting to struggle under the weight of Amazon’s grip. In doing so, we saw the same mistakes brands were making repeated over and over again.
Fast forward 5 years and we have since been named the Fastest Growing Company in Columbus, Ohio, and twice to the Inc. 5,000 list from our work. We now partner with brands, both large and small, as a turn-key solution to their Amazon needs. Brands just launching on Amazon to companies that are in 60,000 stores trust us.
The strategy is always the same; to handle Amazon with a consistent and dedicated approach while providing high-quality service to our customers. While we never guarantee success to our partners, what we can always promise is we will put them in the best spot possible to have success.
We're more than "Some company that sells our stuff on Amazon", to our partners.
Instead, we're a crucial part of their business strategy.
We hope we can be that for you and your brand.
