LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Turning Point Brands Inc., a manufacturer, marketer and distributor of branded consumer products including alternative smoking accessories and consumables with active ingredients, has entered into an agreement with lighter manufacturer Flamagas for exclusive distribution of Clipper lighters in the United States and Canada.

Clipper is currently available in several leading retail chains with a growing presence in additional retail outlets, dispensaries, smoke shops and headshops, the company said. Clipper has developed a loyal global consumer base and has become a preferred partner for leading brands and retailers in the roll-your-own cannabis and tobacco markets, it said.

“Given Flamagas’ global reach and renowned product portfolio, this partnership represents a tremendous opportunity to expand Clipper’s reach in the United States and Canada,” said Frank Vignone, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Turning Point Brands. “Clipper and Zig-Zag create a powerful combination of iconic premium brands in the roll-your-own market perfectly suited to leverage Turning Point Brands’ distribution infrastructure touching over 210,000 retail outlets in North America.”

“Turning Point Brands is the ideal partner for us to expand Clipper’s already strong global following,” said Jordi Marce, chief business officer at Clipper. “Clipper has a proven marketing model that has led to success with our partners in other regions, including establishing the leading position in major markets in Europe, Middle East and other worldwide areas. We are confident that we can implement a similar strategy with Turning Point Brands to extend access to our traditional and utility lighters to more consumers.”

Based in Barcelona, Spain, Flamagas has been a world leader in the lighter industry for more than six decades.

Turning Point Brands makes, markets and distributes branded alternative smoking accessories and consumables through its Zig-Zag and Stoker’s brands, and its emerging brands within the NewGen segment.
