Laudisi Enterprises Acquires Kapp & Peterson

Myrtle Beach, SC, July 20, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Kapp & Peterson, Ltd. and Laudisi Enterprises, Inc. are pleased to announce that Laudisi, a U.S.-based retailer, distributor, and manufacturer of premium pipes and pipe tobacco, will purchase Kapp & Peterson, specifically the Peterson pipe factory and the Peterson of Dublin shop on Nassau Street. Founded in 1865, Peterson is one of the world’s oldest continuously operating pipe factories. “Peterson is among the most venerable of pipe institutions,” noted Sykes Wilford, President and CEO of Laudisi. “While it has changed ownership a number of times during its storied 150-year history, each owner has served as a steward for the factory and the brand,” Wilford continued. “We look forward to continuing that long tradition.”

For the past thirty years, Peterson has been owned by Tom Palmer, Managing Director of the Dublin-based pipe factory. Under Palmer’s leadership, Peterson has become a global pipe brand with distribution networks in Europe, Asia, and the Americas while remaining true to its founding principles and aesthetics. “This milestone marks another positive step forward in the histories of both Peterson and Laudisi,” said Palmer. “Laudisi’s enthusiasm for and knowledge of pipes will combine perfectly with Peterson’s manufacturing expertise and passion to enhance the brand in the years to come.”

Laudisi’s retail website, Smokingpipes.com has a long history of collaboration with the Irish firm and has played a key role in marketing Peterson pipes to collectors around the world. “It is a logical step for us to continue in that role, but in an ownership and management capacity,” said Wilford. “At the same time, Peterson benefits from Laudisi's wider pipe market experience, plus its technology and marketing expertise.” Palmer concurred, noting that “Laudisi deeply understands and appreciates the spirit and culture of Peterson as well as its importance to pipe smokers and collectors.” “Peterson is in good hands,” said Palmer, “This is a new and exciting chapter in our history.”

The Peterson factory will remain in operation at its present location on Pearse Street in Sallynoggin. The Peterson of Dublin store will likewise remain on Nassau Street. The Kapp & Peterson craftsmen and administrative staff will continue in their present roles. Damien Maguire, Financial Director for Peterson, will succeed Tom Palmer as managing director. Conor Palmer, Commercial Director, will remain through the transition. The Smokingpipes Europe team will relocate to Peterson’s facility in Sallynoggin. Joshua Burgess will oversee all of Laudisi’s European interests.

Interessant inderdaad.

Bij het lezen van de woorden 'Smoking Pipes Europe' werd ik trouwens best nieuwsgierig, en wat blijkt: https://www.smokingpipes.com/smokingpip ... s-european

Wellicht oud nieuws, maar ik was het hier nog niet tegen gekomen.

Overgang van de productie van Peterson Tabakken.

Bericht door Huub » 22 jul 2018 14:07

Onderstaand artikel las ik vandaag dit artikel uit Kopenhagen over de overgang van de productie van Peterson-tabakken naar de Scandinavian Tobacco Group.




Press release

 
                                                                              Copenhagen, 20 July 2018
Scandinavian Tobacco Group A/S acquires Peterson Pipe Tobacco of Kapp & Peterson Limited

Scandinavian Tobacco Group A/S has today closed a deal to acquire Peterson Pipe Tobacco, the pipe tobacco business of Kapp & Peterson Limited, an Irish pipe and pipe tobacco manufacturer. 
Included in the deal is the full premium pipe tobacco brand portfolio of Peterson Pipe Tobacco, which has over 150 years of storied heritage and today is sold in 52 countries around the world.  The price paid for the business is confidential, but immaterial.
The acquisition strengthens Scandinavian Tobacco Group's position in the important premium pipe tobacco segment, which has been growing in recent years. 
Additionally, the brand portfolio of Peterson Pipe Tobacco will further increase the Group's presence in important pipe tobacco markets like Germany, the UK, the US and Asia.
Potential for further growth
The Peterson Pipe Tobacco brand portfolio has delivered consistent volume and revenue growth since 2014 against the backdrop of globally shrinking volumes for the category as a whole. The brands carry a solid reputation and are recognised for consisting of complex blends that boast a premium positioning. Among the Peterson products are signature blends such as Sherlock Holmes, Old Dublin and Connoisseur's Choice. 
Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing in Scandinavian Tobacco Group, Christian Hother Sørensen says: "M&A is part of the Scandinavian Tobacco Group DNA and we have a proven track record of achieving synergies when acquiring brands and businesses.  We are excited about this small and interesting bolt-on acquisition in our pipe tobacco category. In Peterson Pipe Tobacco we are acquiring a sound portfolio of premium brands that will increase our offering to our consumers - and which we can further develop whilst leveraging our sales and marketing competencies."

Ik had er ook al iets van opgevangen dat Smokingpipes een afdeling in Europa wil, maar ik betwijfel of ze ook tabak uit de States gaan invoeren.....
Don't judge a book by its cover....or a man by his pipe.... :-?

Goed lezen ;)
We've explored numerous questions regarding the new branch, two of the primary being, "Will we sell tobacco?" and, "Where will the office be located?" On the former, the answer is no, because European tobacco regulations make doing so impracticable. On the latter, we considered a number of options where we had deep relationships with suppliers, finally settling on Dublin.
