EDDINGTONS LTD ACQUIRES SELECTED ASSETS OF EPICUREAN EUROPE LTD.
Eddingtons Ltd has announced it has acquired selected assets including stock and IP from Epicurean Europe Ltd with effect from 3rd March 2015.
Epicurean has developed a strong portfolio of high quality product categories including Barware, Children’s, Kitchenware and Drinkware ranges which are sold across many trade channels in the UK.
John Fox is retiring after more than 50 years in the housewares industry. He founded Epicurean 22 years ago, supplying quality merchandise allied to “service with satisfaction” and wanted to find a like-minded company to take over the reins. He stated – “Saying farewell to so many friends is difficult but I have treasured memories to reflect upon and am pleased to place my trust in Eddingtons to take the business forward"
Roger Murphy, Managing Director of Eddingtons Ltd says:
“We are delighted John put his faith in Eddingtons and extremely excited by the opportunities we see for further growth with this well established brand in all channels. Eddingtons is proud of it’s track record of developing innovative products and managing major brands in the UK and the Epicurean brand will fit perfectly alongside our existing business.”
