Ford Gum is a manufacturer and distributor of a complete line of bulk gumball products and toy gumball machines.

It has a nationwide network of 26 sales reps and warehousing facilities on the East Coast, West Coast and Mid West.

"We’re delighted to be partnering with Ford Gum", commented Alan Nowers, Gacha International’s US-based commercial manager. "Their experience and infrastructure will make them an invaluable partner for us as we look to repeat our European success in North America".

The deal follows the recent signing of other new distribution partners in Brazil, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic.

"Latin America is a challenging market place with punitive duty rates, exchange rate fluctuations, multiple currencies and the associated coinage issues”, added Nowers.

"However, with the exceptional demand for our product and by working closely with all our partners, very little is insurmountable".

Gacha International also work with Toronto-based Actionmatic in the Canadian market place.
