Recently I started thinking about importing products from overseas and selling them here in the states. My thought is to import a small 10' foot shipping container of Japanese made kerosene heaters and sell them to preppers and others who appreciate being off the grid and independent.
Sometime around 1990 the Japanese stopped selling kerosene heaters here due to the burden of liability against the oppressive civil system here which is in need of tort reform. The Japanese manufacturers still export kerosene heaters to Europe, the Middle East and elsewhere. Those who have bought and used kerosene heaters know very well that the Japanese make the highest quality kerosene heaters and nearly every Japanese home uses them for heat. To a person living in Japan, using a kerosene heater is as normal to them as using a microwave oven is to us.
Does anyone here see a market for premium kerosene heaters, much more advanced and better built than the korean and chinese clones being sold today at Home Depot and Lowes ?
