PCH International, in the collaboration with ShopLocket, has launched The Blueprint -- an online trade publication meant to highlight best-in-class hardware in a magazine-style format, with an emphasis on good design, squarely aimed at up and coming hardware and device makers.
Now Blueprint has been rebranded as a consumer-facing online shop, specifically called The Blueprint.
Earlier this year, Shoplocket, a company that enables hardware makers and entrepreneurs to grow their businesses online had been acquired by PCH International.
It will be run by ShopLocket’s co-founder, Katherine Hague, and “will sell a thoughtfully considered collection of the very best tech products, rounding out PCH’s offering of services and truly making it the go-to platform for hardware companies.”
PCH International is a product development and supply chain management company, and also runs a hardware incubator called Highway 1 in San Francisco.
The Blueprint will offer a selection of products from companies such as Drop, Ringly and Mob Notebooks. The website displays the work by the newest tech start-ups and industrial designers and a means for PCH International to provide a marketplace for the fledgling companies that it’s trying to develop. The product offers the most powerful online retail experiences for a new wave of tech consumer products.
“We are creating a marketplace for today’s best tech products and innovative companies. The Blueprint is part of our strategy to open up new, start-up-friendly channels to start-ups and to get new products to market,” Casey explained in a statement.
PCH founder and CEO Liam Casey and the entire PCH team will be expanding the ShopLocket platform and dedicate their support towards hardware revolution.
Blueprint brings you the well-designed technology and the stories behind it. There’s a new wave of tech built to make your life better and we’ll help you explore, discover and shop the latest.
