Who are we?
Vapeware Limited is a micro company established in Ireland.
The company’s owner is myself, Yann (Ian). I’m a French citizen living in Ireland since 2004.
I came to Ireland to work in a French speaking IT helpdesk, and stayed for the people, the lifestyle, and the overall craic 🙂 .
I discovered vaping in 2011 and replaced the “analogs” by vaping in 2012. Over the years, Vaping, become a sort of hobby, starting with making my own coils, brewing some DIY, and trying quite a few kits and mods over time!
While working in IT services was overall a great experience for me, I secretly dreamed of making a living in the vaping industry, and doing so, maybe helping other people like me to quit smoking and improve their health.
I created Vapeware Ltd in December 2020.
Vapeware. It’s a bit of an odd name, but it reflects two of my hobbies and passions: Vaping and IT.
If the connection isn’t obvious it’s probably because it only exists in my mind… For me, e-liquid is bit like the software of the hardware e-cigarette, so vape…ware!
It’s also a pun on “Vaporware” which is a name, in the IT world, for software that never gets released. That almost was the name of the company, but I though it was not a good omen to name my business with such a burdened name!
Last but not least, I realized at some point that Vapeware was almost a perfect anagram for “we are vape”, and then I was sold.
In October 2021 (finally) the Vapeware shop opened its doors for the first time, and that is a dream come true!
As a company we have multiple objectives:
Vaping saves lives
Vaping saves lives, and the more smokers switch to vaping, the better it is, for themselves individually, but also the the general public, whom, through their taxes pay for the healthcare costs of dealing with the consequences of smoking.
So one of our main objective is to help making vaping more easily available to the good people of Leixlip, Co. Kildare where are we located, and by extension to the rest of the country.
We also want to help defend vaping against the assaults of those who decry it or want to make it expensive or impossible for people to vape legally.
At this point in time unfortunately, the WHO, the EU, Big Tobacco, Big Pharma, try to limit the reach of vaping throughout the globe.
We think it’s critical that people who hold vaping as a GOOD thing defend it, by talking to their political representatives and by their votes. We have to also support the efforts of those who have started this fight, such as the IVVA (Irish Vape Vendors Association) or the IEVA (Independent European Vape Alliance).
We also think people are not informed well enough, and don’t follow what is being decided at the highest levels of government in the EU and in Ireland, so we want to help spread the message and fight against misinformation.
Keep vaping affordable
For vaping to be more attractive than cigarettes, it has, amongst other thing, to be cheaper than smoking.
Part of that, is to avoid extra taxes and levies on vaping products, so it joins the previous objective, but it’s also up to us, retailers, to do our best to keep prices affordable, and it is one of our objectives here at Vapeware!
