Our Story

Infora is a privately held brand development and distribution company in New York that was founded in 2009 by StJohn and Pia Wiles.  Having lived in Sweden, they witnessed alternative approaches to everyday life that they thought would translate universally into other cultures.  They began designing and manufacturing products to bring the benefit of their experience to others.  The launch product was the Halsa Mat, making Infora the first company to offer acupressure mats in North America, and was featured on the Dr Oz show as an audience give-away.  Infora learned from this experience and started building additional unique products and brands.  In September 2011, Infora acquired Mango International, a distributor which specialized in marketing unique product concepts, greatly reducing both the speed and cost of bringing its products to market.

 

Today, Infora’s has four main brands; Bison, FatCat, Forskona, and Halsa.  We engineer and design the products and distribute them to retailers including specialty local retailers, mail order catalogs, online stores, and national chains.  We also distribute the True Utility brand in the USA.  We continually work to better support our customers with the best technology solutions available and backed by old fashioned customer service.
