Brandmakers and Fuse Properties join forces to acquire Pelissier
Two long-term members of BEST, Laurie Rogers and Sanjay Patel have set up a new joint company to manufacture card tables in Devon. The tables are currently made in France but the new company has purchased the patents, tooling and other assets of the French company and is opening a new production unit down in Devon.
Laurie Rogers said, “Pelissier have been acknowledged as the foremost bridge tables in Europe and are believed to be the sole manufacturers of quality folding tables left in Europe. Sanjay and I have worked on each other’s businesses for many years as members of BEST. When the opportunity arose to purchase the assets of this French company we decided to combine forces. We shall now be selling English-made quality card tables throughout Europe with our new company Pelissier UK Ltd.”
Sanjay, current Chairman of BEST, said “This joint venture shows the power of networking. The skills of BEST members and their knowledge of each others’ businesses results in many collaborations and this is a good example of what members can expect when they join the Group.”
