Mohawk Group Launches Protective Equipment & Wellness Direct to Consumer Brand Holonix
NEW YORK, May 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mohawk Group Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MWK), the tech-enabled, ecommerce consumer products company, has launched a new health and wellness brand that will feature products based on the latest data and trends in consumer behavior related to the COVID-19 health crisis. The Company expects its first product to be available for sale in mid-May 2020. This is the Company’s fifth brand and represents a new category to its growing ecommerce portfolio.
“The data surrounding demand for categories such as sanitization and protection is obviously going through the roof right now, we are leveraging our agile supply chain and analytics platform to zero in on specific needs we expect will continue to show strong demand post the COVID-19 crisis,” said Yaniv Sarig, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Mohawk Group. “The first product we are launching under the Holonix brand is a single easy to use dosage of hand sanitizer targeting demand for individual size and on the go searches. As there is a tremendous need for these kinds of products by essential workers and first responders, we made the strategic decision to help fill these needs consistent with Mohawk’s core business model. We expect the demand for this and other products to remain strong as states and communities navigate reopening their businesses and schools while ensuring their people remain safe. We will continue to leverage our access to manufacturing capacity to bring these critical products to market.”To learn more about Holonix Health and current product availability, please visit www.holonixhealth.com.
