How did Dollar Shave Club and other similar companies handle the inventory fulfillment side?

As you may all know, Dollar Shave Club was recently acquired for over $1B. It is a fascinating story that could be a great example for other young companies starting out. Any idea on how they dealt with their inventory fulfillment?

They bought owned and serviced the German equipment and so were able to fulfill/anticipate orders

Outsourcing. Dorco, a Korean company, makes their razors. You can get them much cheaper through Amazon.com under the Dorco brand. Nobody, I repeat, nobody in the world seems to be able to scale up as quickly as Korean companies who are part of the Chaebol (4 main companies who comprise the bulk of Korea's economic engine). When the orders outstrip supply, drinks are had with those hoding the purse string, and the Cheabol makes it happen, and the company with the orders work tirelessly to keep on top. It's a culture thing ... you kind of have to live it to understand it. I lived it for 4 months. It was enough for me.
