According to Andrew Schwartz, Vice President of LABS, Inc., “As soon as I hung up the phone from my initial call with (Continents Apart CEO) Steven Husak I knew we had to work together. LABS needed a strategic partnership in order to develop their business on line and Steven’s organization was just the partner we needed. His knowledge of the industry and his ability to position us for this business is making our relationship critical in today’s challenging business climate.”
30 year industry veteran Continents Apart CEO Steven Husak explained, “We are thrilled to represent LABS, Inc. For over 35 years LABS has been at the forefront of innovation in the Permanent Botanical Business. In a generally ‘me too’ business, these are the folks that recognized early on the value of high quality botanicals as they developed the silk ficus tree for mass merchandising. More recently they saw the value-added by working with top designers as they have been partnering with Kathy Ireland International since 2004. They have been innovators throughout their history, continually working closely with the industry’s top style and fashion coordinators to stay ahead of new fashion trends and better anticipate customer needs.”
