NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwired - July 18, 2016) - Gilla Inc. ("Gilla" or the "Company") (OTCQB:GLLA), the fast-growing designer, manufacturer and marketer of E-liquid for vaporizers, announced that a major vape store chain in the United Kingdom (the "UK") has agreed to carry the Company's Coil Glaze brand of products. The vape store chain has over 50 physical locations, plus a significant online presence. As well, the Company has entered into an arrangement for the bottling and boxing of the Coil Glaze product by a local manufacturer in the UK who will also be responsible for distributing the product on a non-exclusive basis to the over 600 vape shops that they currently service. This will notably reduce lead times for delivery of the product into the UK market and should significantly add to the sales of the Coil Glaze brand.
"We have made tremendous progress on our development of the UK market since our launch at The Vaper Expo UK in Birmingham, England this past May," stated J. Graham Simmonds, Chairman and CEO of Gilla. "In just the last two months alone, we have sold more than fourteen thousand bottles of our Coil Glaze brand in the UK and are well positioned to become a major player in this market. Our decision to outsource manufacturing to a local company, while bringing on an already established major distributor in the UK, will greatly enhance our presence throughout the region. While Coil Glaze is already leading the way for Gilla in the UK, it's our intention to use this platform as an opportunity to introduce Gilla's other E-liquid brands to the 2.1 million e-cig users across the UK."
