Dorel Home Acquires U.K.-Based Alphason

Enhancing its European business, Dorel Industries’ Dorel Home division has acquired the assets and operations of Alphason, which is based in the United Kingdom.

Alphason designs and distributes home office and entertainment furniture, selling through several large U.K. independent retailers, Dorel noted. In the acquisition, Alphason becomes part of Dorel Home Furnishings Europe, providing it with a new base and distribution hub to serve a growing European business.

The parties did not disclose terms of the transaction.

“Combining Alphason’s quality customer portfolio, their products and customer service with Dorel Home’s innovative, extensive furniture products represents a tremendously exciting opportunity for us, for Alphason’s existing customer base abroad and for potential new customers,” said Norman Braunstein, Dorel Home president. “We will use this base to expand and to provide strong logistics support with a distribution hub to serve and grow our European business. This tuck-in acquisition is highly strategic, and I am confident it will be welcomed by our customers, including our large North American e-commerce partners, many of whom have been growing in Europe and have been asking Dorel Home to support this growth.”
