The UK’s largest British designer and manufacturer of premium radiators and towel warmers, Vogue (UK), look ahead with renewed enthusiasm as new development opportunities are expected following investment by Kartell UK, one of the largest and fastest-growing suppliers of heating and bathroom products to the independent merchant and showroom sector in the UK.
“Vogue is something I am very proud of, offering a renowned history which has been developed by a highly skilled and knowledgeable workforce over the last 30 years. In this post-pandemic environment, I am confident the investment from Alex and Kartell will enable future growth and secure an exciting future for Vogue, all its staff and the Kartell Group,” explains Raymond Tunks, one of the founders.
Kartell’s investment in Vogue (UK) will support further growth across the UK and internationally, adding to the market presence Vogue already has in the US, as well as enable a more comprehensive range of products and services to be offered by both brands.
“When the opportunity to partner with the team at Vogue arose we immediately identified the strategic fit this acquisition represents and we are delighted to announce the deal. Everyone at Kartell is excited about working with Ray, Rob and the team at Vogue to address the multiple market opportunities in the UK, Europe and International export markets. Our shared focus of best-in-class quality and service will bring added value to all of the group’s customers and stakeholders,” says Alex Norford, CEO of Kartell.
Vogue (UK) will continue to operate autonomously, remaining a stand-alone manufacturing and design business within the Kartell group under the guidance of the existing, highly experienced management team. This will all be supported by ongoing integration and leadership support from the founders of Vogue (UK), Raymond Tunks and Rob Kelley, respectively.
“Vogue’s success can be attributed to the continual endeavour to provide the best in class service and high quality products to our markets and customers. We wanted to find the ideal home for the business to complement and accelerate the work we have done as a team over the last 30 years and believe that Alex and the wider Kartell group are the right people to take Vogue forward,” adds Robert Kelley.
Vogue (UK) is the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of quality towel warmers, designer radiators and heating accessories, with market leading eco-credentials since 1990 and here’s to the next 30 years!
