Italian tabletop company invests in U.S. June 6, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Business.

Italian design house Mepra, through its partnership with Reach Distribution, is significantly expanding its food-service business in the United States and has entered the polycarbonate drinkware business with a full lineup that will debut at the New York International Gift Fair later this summer.

Mepra, which provides hospitality products on a wide scale in Europe, previously had a limited food-service presence here in America. 

“It’s such a huge market here in the United States, and we’ve decided to invest heavily in it,” said Curt Carpenter, president of the Boston-based Reach Distribution. It has expanded its hospitality tabletop assortment significantly, with a wider and deeper product portfolio. 

After buying a polycarbonate factory in Europe, Mepra will also launch stemware, barware and serveware in contemporary shapes at the gift fair in New York in August.
