How A2X Has Given Central 23 More Time For Fun

Entertainment company Central 23, was founded in 2016 by entrepreneurs and now co-CEOs Luke Shelley and Marcus Ereira. What started as selling just a single greeting card design to lifestyle retail giant Urban Outfitters, has now expanded into an entire product range. A range that continues to evolve and expand.

How A2X helped Ficks Music focus on growth Ficks Music has carved out a very specific niche for itself. The business sells high-quality, well-curated classical sheet music online.

Ficks has its own online store, but the business is increasingly focused on selling through Amazon. The platform allows them to reach a wider audience and even manages their shipping and warehousing.
