This is an exciting time for the successful and iconic Denby brand with its beautiful, versatile and durable made in England ceramics and homewares. The brand and business is going from strength to strength in its home UK market as well as overseas in North America, South Korea and China.
The brand’s profile continues to be raised, as demonstrated recently having been the subject of the BBC’s Inside the Factory programme. The addition of its new porcelain manufacturing capability, alongside the long-standing stoneware operations at the two-hundred-year-old Derbyshire-based pottery, is opening up further opportunities.
Sebastian Lazell, Group CEO of Denby, explains: “Hilco Capital, who invested in the Denby business in 2009 securing jobs and manufacturing operations in the UK, are delighted at the sustained progress of their investment and are keen to ensure that the positive trajectory continues. Denby Pottery, our investors and advisors are, therefore, reviewing options for the future ownership of the Denby Group, potentially involving the support of investors better suited to the increasingly international needs of the business in the years ahead. No decisions have been taken at this time and any potential future decision will be taken with the interests of the company’s stakeholders always in mind. So, it very much remains business as usual at Denby Pottery with every effort focused on meeting and supplying the needs of its many consumers and customers around the world.”
