From hydrating skincare and rejuvenating haircare solutions
to our comfortable and stylish footwear options, we can now say that we offer a variety of products that will service you from head to toe! This is an exciting time for us and we are thrilled to welcome HatchBeauty to the American Exchange Group family.”
“In today's consumer marketplace, there's an undeniable surge in demand for health and wellness products that enhance our everyday lives. With this acquisition, we are not only embracing a strategic opportunity for expanded growth but also aiming to introduce HatchBeauty Brands and their amazing product lines to our well-established retailer portfolio” said Steve Velazquez, Chief Strategy Officer at American Exchange Group.
American Exchange Group intends to initiate a rebranding process for HatchBeauty, renaming it as AX Beauty Brands but will continue to offer the same beloved and trusted line of beauty and personal care products to consumers at their favorite retailers such as Target, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Trader Joe’s and Dillards. This strategic partnership brings together both organizations' unique strengths and creative talents, paving the way for exciting new synergies and growth opportunities.
