Has acquired The 1810 Company
Today Schock acquired The 1810 Company, a specialist in the distribution of sinks and taps. UK-based The 1810 Company was founded in 2009 by Managing Director Gareth Williams. Its offices and warehouse are located in Mold, North Wales. In addition, The 1810 Company showcases its products in its own showroom at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. The acquisition provides Schock with the opportunity to further expand its distribution in the UK.
“The strong position that The 1810 Company holds in the UK market is the perfect foundation for us to further expand the business in the UK. The 1810 Company’s products, philosophy and market knowledge are exceptional and we look forward to working with them in the future,” said Ralf Boberg, CEO of Schock.
Gareth Williams, Managing Director of The 1810 Company, added: “I have always valued the Schock brand for its originality, strength and products. The combined strength of our two brands and the compelling product portfolio we can offer together in the future are great opportunities. Together, this puts us on the path to becoming a leading supplier of sinks and faucets in the UK. We look forward to the future together and to unlocking the full potential of both brands.”
The 1810 Company will continue to be led by the current management team and will market Schock’s products alongside its product portfolio.
