The Swansea based firm which itself employs 14 people at its distribution centre and high street stores, has joined a growing Europe wide lobby against a Brussels proposal to class e-cigs as medicines in the same way as nicotine gums and patches which help smokers quit. E-cigarettes contain nicotine but vaporise waste products and manufacturers claim they are an alternative to standard tobacco cigarettes which produce damaging tar and smoke as well as help smokers cut down or quit. Its estimated around 1.3 million people use them in the UK with the market expected to reach 250m per year in 2014. ECigaretteDirect.co.uk co-founder James Dunworth buys his products from China where they are made under licence and distributes them through an online site and a high street store.

“Eonsmoke has become a regional powerhouse in the electric cigarette business because of our differentiated look, competitive margins, and diversified flavor line up,” says Oleg Spiridonov, Vice President of Eonsmoke, LLC. “We’re starting to go national by opening distribution relationships and people are really starting to notice; the company is starting to get intense investor interest after last month’s major Big Tobacco news of investment into electronic cigarettes.” Last month in June 2013, Phillip Morris announced they will launch their own electronic cigarette brand MarkTen in August of the same year. R.J. Reynolds has announced similar news with their brand, Vuse which is expected to go national later this year. Lorillard already sells an e-cigarette under the Blu Cigs trademark after the acquisition was made in April 2012. “The brand is really starting to expand nationally as we pursue an active growth strategy which involves continuous product development investment and vast marketing expenses,” says Michael Tolmach, the Chief Executive Officer of Eonsmoke, LLC.
