" DORR is focused on the U.S. market right now; and will start to push into the international market by end of this year. "

Dorr made its debut with a sophisticated selection of vibrators and an “advanced intimate toy care system” with a UV light for disinfection. Dorr is a manufacturer, design house, engineering team, sales team and marketing team under one roof. The company says its departments allow it to obtain direct feedback from the customers that gets passed along to the production line to implement into the design of new toys. “We listen to your needs and we fulfill them,” the company says on its website. “In addition, by consolidating corporate functions, we are able to deliver luxury products at affordable prices.”

In this exclusive Q&A, Dorr’s vice president of international sales Ivan Ho discusses the company’s launch.

Ivan Ho: I am the vice president of sales, Benny Sun is the CEO of DORR, and Janine Ho is the vice president of international sales.

Ho: DORR was launched at the beginning of this year.

XBIZ: What are the company’s goals?

Ho: Our goal is to become one of the top novelty high-end luxury lines, and to keep manufacturing products at the highest quality possible.

XBIZ: How many collections/products are there in Dorr’s lineup?

Ho: DORR is focused on the U.S. market right now; and will start to push into the international market by end of this year. Retailers love the motor that is in the vibrators. Jon Vogt, director of purchasing at Eldorado said, “We’re pleased to partner with Dorr to offer their elegant line to customers. With their sleek lines, pleasing colors and chic packaging, I think these will be great sellers.”

Eldorado is DORR’s only distributor in the U.S.

XBIZ: What inspired the company¹s U.S. launch?
