I am thrilled to join Scandinavian Child
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) May 6, 2008
Scandinavian Child, LLC (http://www.scichild.com), a rapidly growing brand builder and distributor of high-end children's products in North America, announced today the acquisition of certain assets of Euro-Baby™, a distributor of European products for infants, babies, and children. The acquisition will add the UK-designed Micralite™ (http://www.micralite.com) stroller brand to SCI's current product lines, which include the acclaimed Svan® of Sweden, Cariboo® of New Zealand, Anka™ by Svan, and líllébaby™.
Euro-Baby president, Bill Jacoby, will join Scandinavian Child as Vice President of Operations. Bill brings solid juvenile industry experience and a background that will help expand Scandinavian Child's commitments to exceptional customer service and the use of innovative technologies in communicating the Scandinavian Child message.
"Scandinavian Child has worked hard to find products that fit into our 'designs without compromise' philosophy, and has looked for a stroller company for several years that would meet our high standards," said Scandinavian Child president and founder, Brenda Berg. "Safety, functionality, and high-end design are at the core of what we do, so we are pleased to be working with Micralite. Adding Bill to our team will also strengthen our offering through his industry experience, as well as his leadership abilities in the areas of operations and technology."
With the addition of Micralite, Scandinavian Child's family of products continues to grow, encompassing high chairs, bouncers, bassinets, carriers, scooters, and now strollers. In addition to the Micralite brand, Scandinavian Child will soon launch several other products in their Svan collection at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in May and in all of their brands at the All Baby and Child Expo this September.
"I am thrilled to join Scandinavian Child," said Bill Jacoby. "In looking at our companies' philosophies and mission statements, Brenda and I realized we had the same operating practices and dedication to customer service. So it is fitting that we will now formally work together to continue the pursuit of bringing innovative products to the marketplace."
