Gurkha Cigars announced the acquisition of the American Caribbean Cigars factory located in Nicaragua. After having been partners for five years, this acquisition will be the company’s first proprietary factory.
“Our company has seen rapid growth despite its boutique approach,” said Kaizad Hansotia, CEO of Gurkha Cigars. “Owning our own factory is a natural transition and the next strategic step in being able to continue to satisfy the needs of Gurkha fans worldwide.”
American Caribbean Cigars had previously produced five million cigars annually. Gurkha plans to increase accessability of their cigars with the purchase of the factory, making it the location where all their small batch blends are rolled.
“I have always supported Gurkha owning our own factory,” said Juan Lopez, National Sales Director, Gurkha Cigars. “Owning our own factory allows us to have better control over quality and consistency of our product. I have no doubt that the future is bright for Gurkha.”
