Klone Lab laces up with B2BGateway to Sell to More Than 40 Major Retailers Worldwide
May 1, 2012 | Boston, MA – Klone Lab, owners of Ipath Footwear, and licensee to big name brands like New Balance, recruits the fully-integrated EDI support services of B2BGateway to sell to major retailers like Amazon, DSW, and Zappos. As a licensee of New Balance Athletic Shoes, Klone Lab is the authorized developer and distributor of all open toed footwear under the New Balance brand. Klone Lab also acquired the skateboard and lifestyle brand Ipath Footwear 16 months ago. So what’s the work environment like for this booming Boston-based company? Business is flourishing at their Boston headquarters and employees are working round-the-clock during peak season at all offices including those in Asia and on the West Coast. However, it is not all work and no play at Klone Lab as the staff sneaks in surf and skate sessions throughout the day, and encourages a family friendly work environment that includes bringing dogs to work and regular home cooked pot lucks. “Our journey with B2BGateway has been very good thus far,” said Director of Logistics, Mark Yates. “Klone Lab started up very quickly and B2BGateway was able to meet our aggressive timelines for establishing EDI connections set up with key retailers. Partnering with B2BGateway has dramatically reduced our order processing times in an affordable manner and their customized solutions have been a key component in meeting our unique business needs.” About Klone Lab: Formed in February of 2009, Klone Lab’s professional management team has more than 29 years of combined experience in the lifestyle and performance footwear industry.
