We do business with a focus on competitive products, impeccable shipping, and out-of-this-world customer service. The company was founded in March of 2011 by James Thompson and Jesse Webb. Even during those early days, it was clear to them that vaping could change the world by offering a realistic alternative to cigarettes. Mt Baker Vapor has come a long way from its humble beginnings in the homemade lab of a Bellingham, WA apartment.
The man who started it all, James Thompson, was a card dealer at a local casino. One day, during an intense poker tournament, he stumbled upon someone using an electronic cigarette. He was intrigued. James had been a smoker for 11 years and had recently welcomed his third child into the world. Keeping off cigarettes and allowing his children to grow up in a carcinogen-free environment was incredibly appealing. He says, “I started because I loved electronic cigarettes. They were something new and exciting to learn about. Knowing many fellow smokers, and being one myself, I quickly realized how important this invention could be to improving people’s lives.”
James was determined to get his foot in the vaping industry door. In 2010 he began handing out starter kits and business cards for other e-cig companies. He was working out of his car on top of working a full-time job at a local Washington casino, but the grind paid off. After a few months, he had learned what he needed to start his own successful company and teamed up with a co-worker. Jesse Webb started as a silent partner with MBV before growth necessitated a more active role. With two active owners, a growing customer base, and winning business philosophy, the company was on its way to becoming what we know today as Mt Baker Vapor. Three basic ideals have driven this evolution: efficient shipping, outstanding customer service, and affordable juices.
