When Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge bought an historic farmhouse in upstate New York in 2008, they planned to use it as a weekend getaway. But when the recession upended their professional lives, they rescued 100 goats and turned the farm into a business, creating goat milk soap for sensitive skin. Beekman 1802, named for the farmhouse and the year it was built, has sold over 15 million bars of soap and now offer hundreds of skincare products across multiple channels.
“NetSuite has given us full visibility into the supply chain. We know when we’re going to be out of stock, and we have mechanisms to reach out to suppliers and expedite things.” Tomei Thomas, CEO, Beekman 1802
