Safety razor companies will be selling their best safety blades in the US and abroad for the first time as part of a global crackdown on the proliferation of counterfeit products.US-based company Nite-A-Grip recently launched a partnership with a new international supplier to sell a range of quality, high-quality, US-made safety rashers, which include the NiteA-Razor.
The new supplier is based in Switzerland and will supply Nite A-Rashers in Europe and the US to consumers and businesses worldwide, according to a press release from the company.
The Nite razor will be available in different colours and sizes from Nite Razor USA and Nite Razors in the UK.
“Nite Razor USA and the NITE razor will soon be the best-selling brands in the world, with over 15 million units sold worldwide,” Nite, which is owned by US-based Philips, said in the release.
Nite Razor products have been available in the United States since 1997.US regulators have taken steps to clamp down on the widespread use of counterfeit razor blades by limiting sales to licensed dealers.
In November last year, the US Food and Drug Administration issued a directive that will require retailers to notify customers when their blades are counterfeit and report any suspicious or suspiciously shaped blades to law enforcement.
The rule also includes a mechanism to allow a consumer to file a complaint with the agency.
In February, the Federal Trade Commission announced new penalties for retailers who knowingly sell counterfeit blades.
