Who are we?

A.A.C. Import Export was founded more than 40 years ago as a wholesaler aimed at supplying specialty tobacco shops to the Dutch market. It was soon started with its own import from China of lighters and accessories, which in 2000 resulted in its own purchasing office in China. From that moment on, our focus was not only focused on supplying Dutch retail, but also more and more B2B throughout Europe.


Due to our strong position in China, with short lines and the right contacts, we have been able to expand our range over the years. We are still the specialist in lighters, which we still import directly ourselves and often also have produced in large numbers for private label customers.

A few years ago we also supplemented our range with grinders, pipes and other accessories that are very popular in the tourist cities. We make these articles with our own designs and at the special request of our customers with our own designs.

We strive to renew part of the range over and over again, keeping in mind that our basic range is always in stock.



Outside lighters, grinders and pipes A.A.C import Export a total assortment, including supplies such as sleeves, rolling paper, tube machines, playing cards, tubes, water pipes, bongs and much more.


For several years we have been the proud exclusive distributor for the Netherlands of the Bulldog Amsterdam items. This is a complete range ranging from rolling papers, lighters, grinders and pipes to key rings and textiles.


A few years ago, we chose to join forces with our then customer and supplier JF MAES. This is also a family business and we had been working closely together for more than 20 years at that time. This has resulted in an even more complete range and sharper purchase prices because we can buy together, our distribution therefore goes through the warehouse of JF Maes in Belgium
