20 YEARS OF SUCCESS - AFG distribution humbly started almost 20 years ago in
1999 from a rented house of the Founder and CEO, Jayson Magura in Asheville, NC. This humble
start, however did not stop AFG from doing nearly a half a million dollars in sales its first year.
Still in Asheville, fast forward almost 20 years and AFG Distribution is in a 50,000 square foot warehouse with 120+ customer-focused employees! Needless to say, AFG has had tremendous growth over the years. Their main goal is to be “Your One Stop Alternative Distributor.” They currently offer over 9,000 products and their Product Team is always on the forefront looking for products that are not just unique and different, but also offer excellent value to their loyal customers. Constantly uncovering products that fit these requirements can be challenging at times, so several years ago AFG Distribution expanded from only distributing products to also manufacturing and selling their own brands and product lines. In fact, AFG’s bestselling innovative high end product line, Pulsar Vaporizers & Water Pipes (#enjoyhigherculture) are the fastest growing brand in the business. The Pulsar APX Family (Volt, Wax, Vape & Smoker) is also extremely popular and they are continually p rogressing this exclusive line!

Throughout the year we also release a bi-monthly 175+ page supplemental source to growth & profit for our customers called The AFG Insider. Some of the newer products include: Pulsar APX Volt, Sesh- Gear, and Herbal Chef Electric Infuser.
According to Dickert, “We continuously strive to develop and bring fresh products to market that are both unique & innovative, but it’s also about offering high-quality products at affordable prices.”
While AFG has experienced tremendous growth, Dickert says
that culturally, “AFG Distribution is still like a big family. Even
though we have drastically grown and our day to day tasks have
changed, we still all understand the importance of a good laugh!
At the end of the day it is still All Fun Gifts, it’s a great place!”
