Retail Access Program (RAP)

The Retail Access Program provides foreign OEM manufacturers of consumer products an established "one source" sales and distribution platform to access the U.S. retail marketplace on a direct manner. Managed in partnership, M. Block provides a turnkey solution for foreign manufacturer interested in building a U.S. business. This comprehensive supply chain model addresses the challenges facing many foreign OEM manufacturers today; the need for better control over their destiny.
