During the 1950s, Brazil was called a developmental country. Brazil earned that title because companies were exporting goods at crazy prices just so the country could create a stable economy. The world took notice, and Brazil became a source for raw materials, shoes, oil, precious stones, and other commodities. In the state of Sao Paulo, a sawmill called Americana Sawmill Americana was trying to get into the export business. The sawmill was known for cutting eucalyptus and other trees in that state, so there was an established domestic customer base. The Maluf family owned the sawmill, and they realized the excess eucalyptus wood that was accumulating on the sawmill’s property could be turned into a product. That idea turned into eucalyptus wood ceiling tiles. The wood ceiling tiles were inexpensive to make, and they were attractive additions to the building material supply industry.

The eucalyptus ceiling tiles caught on in the domestic market, and the demand became overwhelming. The Maluf’s started a new company to handle the demand for the tiles, and they called that company, Eucatex. Eucatex was one of the Brazilian companies that started exporting in the 1950s. Other South American countries became the first Eucatex customers. By the end of the 1960s, Eucatex was exporting ceiling tiles to North America and Europe.

The founder of Eucatex was Flavio Maluf’s grandfather. Flavio became president of Eucatex in 1997, after working for the company for ten years. Over the last 20 years, Flavio Maluf has turned Eucatex into one of the world’s leading suppliers of floorboards, doors, paint, varnishes, and other building materials. Maluf has also played an important role in promoting clean air initiatives in Brazil. Eucatex leases thousands of acres to grow eucalyptus trees. Those trees replace the trees that the company uses for some products.

Flavio Maluf is one of Brazil’s leading voices in the recycling, reduce and reuse program. Flavio is asked to speak about his success at Eucatex, but he is also asked to speak out environmental issues. Today, Eucatex is one of the top exporters of building materials. The company has three Brazilian offices and offices in the United States and in Europe.

Recently, the General Manager of one of the most innovative fashion brands, Fabletics, suggested that fashion retailers cannot compete in the fashion business without thinking about the challenges posed by Amazon. As Amazon has captured nearly 20 percent of the market share in the industry, it is important for growing brands like Fabletics to think outside the box. Interestingly, Fabletics has just done that by providing a unique model of reverse showrooming.


Traditionally, Amazon prompted the customer to buy products online without visiting the brick and mortar store. In fact, the advent of technology and mobile phones also supported the Amazon model because more customers are inclined to buy online. The concept of reverse showroom technique originated in response to the competition of online stores such as Amazon. For instance, Fabletics challenged the norm by offering online catalog subscription of its fashion products. Accordingly, the subscriber would get a lot of deals and discount, which are tailor-made for subscribers.


As deals from Fabletics online catalog are exclusive to its members, anyone can easily visit the physical store to redeem the deal and try clothing in the store. The integration of online and offline model makes sense because customers of fashion clothing not only like online deals, but they prefer to visit the physical store to try their clothing before buying them. The reverse showroom technique used by Fabletics encourage customers to visit the physical storefronts where they not only get to try cloths, but also get highly personalized service from the customer service representatives.


In fact, Fabletics is not the only store that is working on reverse showroom technique. There are others who have joined the party. As such, innovation is one the rise as robots deliver clothes inside the changing room so that you don’t have to get out to try the new cloth. Just pick up a few clothes that you like and let the robots deliver it in the changing room.


By using innovative techniques, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is successfully competing with Amazon for fashionable clothing and related products. Already the company has increased its revenue by $250 Million in just three years. In fact, the company will open 75 stores to 100 stores in the next three to five years. The success of Fabletics can be credited to its focus on understanding the need of its customers. Accordingly, the subscription catalog model allows the management to understand and offer products that attract the customer.


The success of the model is evident by the high percentage of walk-in customers who are already a member of the Fabletics subscription service. It is estimated that nearly 25 to 50 percent of walk-in customers are former members. Therefore, it is easier for the customer representative to serve these customers as they can anticipate the need of their clients. To increase awareness of the brand, the company also offers on-the-spot membership to customers who walk in their stores. Whenever a customer tries or buys a new cloth, it automatically shows on the online portal of the customer, which allows the company to offer similar clothing and future deals matching the shopping history of the customer.
