Vampfangs is Celebrating 25 Years, a New Owner, and Product Expansions
Vampfangs—located in Beverly, Massachusetts and the go-to source for custom-fit vampire fangs, GOTHIKA® theatrical and F/X contact lenses, and vampire apparel—recently announced its quarter-century in business and new ownership. Although the company officially changed hands in July 2017, the announcement wasn’t made until earlier this year.
“We’re thrilled about our recent acquisition,” commented Alexis Abare and Benjamin Selecky, CEOs of Vampfangs. “It’s an honor to be at the helm of such a well-respected and established brand. We’re excited about engaging with Vampfangs followers and are eager to receive their feedback and input. We’re looking forward to bringing the same commitment to quality and personal service to Vampfangs that are at the core of our other businesses.”
Scott Smiledge, founder and former owner of Vampfangs states, “This sale marks one of the biggest milestones in my life. After 25 years, it feels like I sent a child off to college. I know Vampfangs is in the best possible hands I could have ever hoped to find. Alexis and Ben are great friends with incredible drive, fire, and vision,” he said.
“We’re passionate about delivering value to our clients and customers. Our purchase of Vampfangs has created monstrous synergy between all of our brands.” says Abare. “We’re committed to creating a phenomenal experience for new and returning guests and are deeply grateful to our longstanding, loyal customers who have made Vampfangs a trusted, global brand.”
Vampfangs’ plans for 2018 include expanding the company’s selection of GOTHIKA® Theatrical Contact Lenses to include custom creations as well as toric lenses for patients with astigmatism. In addition to widening the corrective strength options on many popular styles.
Vampfangs will also spearhead efforts to educate consumers on contact-lens safety. “Safety of our customers is paramount. We’re in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and are proud to be one of the largest sources for FDA Cleared FX contacts in the United States.” commented Selecky.
