USA eShop Signs Exclusive Distribution Agreement with Major BBQ Grill Manufacturer

December 2, 2016 (Columbia, SC) – USA eShop LLC, a Columbia based e-commerce company that operates in Europe, recently signed an agreement with MECO Corporation to act as their exclusive distributor for the United Kingdom. USA eShop’s core business is promoting and selling American-made products in the UK and Europe through its portfolio of ecommerce channels include WishBoxUSA.co.uk, Amazon UK/EU, and a variety of B2B channels in Europe. Founded in 2012, USA eShop’s portfolio of e-commerce sites has become a trusted source for European consumers seeking to purchase American products.

MECO, a Greeneville, Tennessee based manufacturer, is one of the nation’s largest producers of barbeque grills and smokers. A major supplier to Lowes and Home Depot in the US, MECO selected USA eShop as the right partner to grow its international business in the UK.

Taking advantage of a growing interest in barbequing in Europe, USA eShop is developing a new ecommerce site focused on American barbeque products for UK and European consumers. This site will provide a dedicated channel to promote MECO grills (www.meco.net) and other barbeque and outdoor cooking products.

USA eShop maintains a warehouse and fulfillment center outside of London and is able to offer overnight deliveries to most customers in the UK. When purchasing through USA eShop, European consumers no longer have to worry about customs regulations and international freight to buy American goods. Additionally, USA eShop has local marketing staff in the UK to propel its sales activities through social media, allowing for double digit growth this year.

Jerry Smith, CEO and founder, stated, “We appreciate the confidence reflected in this agreement that supports our unique business model. MECO is an outstanding US manufacturer and we are most happy to be associated with them in this partnership.”

John Wilkinson, COO, added, “We are excited to have MECO as our flagship barbecue manufacturer as we prepare to launch a dedicated American barbecue-ecommerce site in Europe in early 2017. We are confident that our business model can generate high-volume export sales for US manufacturers.”
