Two years ago Wander Beauty launched its first product on QVC, a two-sided stick combining Blush and Illuminator that fans still rave about. Today, the company boasts 17 SKUs and a global beauty brand renowned for multipurpose products. 

Recent numbers from Women’s Wear Daily put retail sales on track to pass $15 million in 2017, more than double the figure Wander achieved the previous year.  The company is also reported to have raised more than $4 million in its latest round of VC funding, which is expected to drive further international expansion.

It’s a rapid ascent for a brand that began as an everyday salon conversation between two women bonding over their mutual passion for travel and beauty products.  Continue reading Wander Beauty Secures Investment for the Essentials

NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J., Dec. 13, 2017 Capacity LLC, trusted leader in order fulfillment, e-commerce, and electronic data interchange (EDI), is excited to announce the launch of its newest client, the fast-growing beauty brand Glossier.

Capacity is thrilled to bring fans of Glossier the best in modern beauty products, while providing the brand with benefits from its bespoke order presentation and the latest pick-to-light/put-to-light fulfillment solutions.

“We’re excited to partner with someone we believe can grow with us as we scale our business and is committed to continuous process improvement, just as we are at Glossier,” said Sarah Hague, Executive Director of Logistics and Planning at Glossier.

“Outstanding presentation and customer experience can empower a brand”

One of the things that first attracted Glossier to the Capacity brand was its in-house engineering and IT teams. The fulfillment solution Capacity customized for Glossier utilizes dedicated satellite packing stations, shipping terminals, and multiple quality control terminals, all of which operate seamlessly under the watchful eyes of its engineering team.

Throughout launch week, the Capacity team had Glossier products ready to move at 7 a.m. and successfully shipped all orders scheduled to go out that week. This successful first week clearly demonstrated that Capacity is prepared for the heavy order volume in the months ahead with its latest high-profile client, allowing the Glossier team to focus on core activities like product innovation and customer engagement.

Capacity’s mission is to delight customers every time they receive their carefully prepared and presented orders. It is this commitment to customer experience that aligns Glossier and Capacity.

“Our two companies are a great match,” says Thom Campbell, CSO and co-founder of Capacity. “Both teams understand how outstanding presentation and customer experience can empower a brand. We will work nonstop to deliver the experience that Glossier fans expect and deserve.”
