Epoca International is celebrating 25 years of business this year.
According to the company, in 1991, Epoca CEO/founder Steven Melzer set out with a vision to create a family of lifestyle brands in the housewares industry, offering an innovative array of quality products that are responsibly manufactured. Over the past 25 years, Epoca International said it has successfully fulfilled that by pioneering several consumer brands and high quality eco-friendly products.
In 2003, current president, Brian Melzer, joined the company.With his focus on brand building and product innovation for Epoca’s flagship offerings, Ecolution Cookware and Primula Beverage Products, Epoca’s retail distribution expanded.
In the most recent years, Epoca’s further growth has included the licensing of Cooking Light kitchenware; opening a series of global operations offices in China; and an expanded employee base including merchandisers, product developers, sales directors, graphic designers and marketers. The influx of employees prompted the corporate headquarters to move to a larger, state-of-the-art office facility in Boca Raton, FL.
“Epoca means ‘new era,’ a phrase as appropriate for our business today as it was on the day we began,” said Brian Melzer, president, Epoca.
“We have achieved this through the hard work and dedication of our employees and partners, and look forward to continued success as we celebrate this milestone,” said Steven Melzer, CEO of Epoca International.
