La Cafetière has acquired Randwyck BV, a family-owned Dutch supplier of heat-resistant glass tea and coffeeware.
La Cafetière says that the products supplied by Randwyck – which has over 40 years’ experience in the market – will both enhance and extend its current offer of cafetières, coffee machines, chocolatières, teapots, infusers, tableware, gift sets and accessories.
Randwyck’s core product range comprises coffee pots, teapots and glasses, trays, coasters, spoons and other related accessories.
The deal will see a new business, La Cafetière BV, operate out of Randwyck’s existing premises in Maastricht.
La Cafetière managing director Lew Bingham said the acquisition would “create significant benefits for our customers. Randwyck is a very well-established retail brand with an excellent reputation for quality and service. The synergy between it and La Cafetière is ideal as it provides us with the opportunity to both not only extend the product range but also to expand geographically.
“We’ll be able to channel Randwyck goods into our own traditional markets of the UK, USA and Scandinavia. We’re also committed to a substantial investment programme, from which customers can expect improved service levels and innovative new product development.”
La Cafetière currently exports to over 45 countries.
