Paris Business Products seeks to bring Dotz cord identifiers to masses
WESTAMPTON, N.J. — A line of cord and cable management products is making its way to retailers nationwide.
Paris Business Products announced it has signed an exclusive license to manufacture and distribute the Dotz brand of cord and cable management products throughout North America. Dotz cord identifiers are designed to take the guesswork out of knowing what cord, cable or wire is in what plug and belongs to what device. Each identifier features a bright color and a preprinted insert, the company said.
"I am extremely excited to expand our product portfolio into a new and underserved category of cord and cable management products in retailers across North America. Dotz is a unique, well-designed product line that was ripe for wider distribution and expansion" Paris Business Products president and CEO Gerard Toscani said. "We provided an opportunity to Dotz LLC to bring a comprehensive, single-branded offering to our retail partners to cover the category."
