Hickory Flats strives to be an organization that uses integrity, creativity, and efficiency to assist clients in meeting their e-commerce goals. We use our experience and knowledge to help clients build their online revenue streams that will increase value and flexibility in their lives. Hickory Flats intends to continually grow and gain knowledge in the ever-changing landscape of e-commerce and to constantly meet the expectations of our clients as service and knowledge experts.
Hickory Flats was started by founding partners Rohn Yan and Tim Jordan after they met and worked together on international procurement and logistics enterprises in industries unrelated to e-commerce. Separately, Tim started learning about the methods and skills needed to sell on Amazon, and quickly realized the importance and power of online sales for small business, with an emphasis on creating “Private Label” products and personal brands. Using their experience and knowledge from previous jobs and projects, they created a business model that would leverage their abilities and locations (China and the USA) and offer a service to meet the needs of their clients. Tim has since been invited to speak and teach at a variety of conferences for e-com sellers, a well as being featured on multiple webinars and podcasts in the same industry.
Hickory Flats is structured with sister companies in USA and Asia, jointly owned and managed. It is an enterprise with offices and staff on both ends of the world, allowing close management and “boots on the ground” services that make it unique to most sourcing and logistics companies in this industry. All Hickory Flats team members are encouraged to use integrity, creativity, and further education to create an atmosphere of growth and pride in everything they do.
In addition, Hickory Flats has also extended their presence and services to Central America, where they are engaging in various projects to match brand owners with fair wage / fair trade artisans as well as NGO groups. These efforts are in an attempt to add stability to the region via increased trade, but also allow brand owners to offer a unique product line with a great story and purpose!
