Regal Ware has finalized the acquisition of the Espro brand of premium coffee and tea presses and accessories. The Espro brand has become an integral part of Regal Ware’s line of kitchen products since the company became majority shareholder, according to Regal Ware.
Espro founder Bruce Constantine, who has held the role of president since the April 2018 acquisition, will leave the company. Dave Lenz, chief operating officer for Regal Ware, will serve as interim Espro president while the company conducts an executive search to fill the role.
Since joining Regal Ware two years ago, Espro has launched three additional product lines: Cold Brew, Tasting Cups and the Bloom Pour Over coffee brewer.
“Our commitment to integrity, superior quality, innovation and continuous improvement have been core to Regal Ware’s mission since we were founded 75 years ago,” said Jeff Reigle, chairman, president and CEO for Regal Ware. “The Espro brand embodies everything that Regal Ware and our employees stand for, and I am excited to see where we can take it over the next 75 years.”
