Arc Cardinal and Churchill have reached a new deal to become the exclusive distributor of the Dudson brand in North America.
The agreement follows the news that dinnerware manufacturer Dudson filed for bankruptcy in early April this year.
As a result, Churchill, the manufacturer of ceramic tableware, acquired the Dudson brand and its two main patterns, Evo and Harvest.
The new distribution agreement will come into immediate effect and will mean Arc Cardinal will warehouse, market and distribute Dudson products in the portfolio exclusively in North America.
Richard Price, president of Churchill USA said: “Dudson is a global brand with a longstanding heritage within the hospitality industry. We are pleased to be able to continue to service the North American market with immediate effect through our partner Arc Cardinal.
“The financial stability of the Churchill business makes the future of the Dudson brand an exciting one. We look forward to delivering continual investment to the Dudson product portfolio and bringing new ideas as well as excellent service to the North American marketplace.”
