The Cookware Company has acquired Merten & Storck, a German cookware manufacturer known for its enameled cookware. The company’s manufacturing facility is located in Drensteinfurt, Germany.
“The product’s durable and environmentally friendly characteristics make it a perfect fit for our existing range,” said Wim de Veirman, CEO of The Cookware Company.
The Merten & Storck factory has 60 employees and had earnings of €10 million, or $11.2 million, according to The Cookware Company. The products are mainly manufactured for third-party vendors but have limited distribution under its own brand name, Kochstar. Cookware Company officials said the initial focus for Merten & Storck products would be distribution in Asia.
The Cookware Company also recently saw the integration of Dutch firms BK and Koninklijke Van Kempen & Begeer into its existing range and distribution channels.
