Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 14, 2013
Steelite International, a leading global provider of tabletop products for the hospitality industry, announced today that it has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Nambé to market and sell its design-led, award-winning collection of service items in the Americas.
“This new partnership positions Steelite to offer high-end crafted metal products to the luxury segment of the market,” said John Miles, President of Steelite International Americas. “Hotel F&B Operators are looking for unique and innovative products for their hospitality presentations. Nambé fills this niche by combining the finest materials and hand craftsmanship with design from the world’s most esteemed artists.”
Robert Varakian, President and CEO of Nambé, had this to say: “We are excited to be partnering with Steelite, the premier hospitality distributor, and for the opportunity of bringing Nambe’s world class design and quality to the food service industry.”
Since 1951, Nambé has produced countless award-winning tabletop pieces as well as items exhibited and acquired by museums such as the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the International Museum of Design. Nambé’s service items include bowls, trays, pitchers, serving sets, and unique decorative items such as vases and candleholders. Its signature metal alloy (and a 15-step casting process) ensures that Nambé’s metal designs have the beauty and luster of silver, the strength of iron, and the resistance to cracking, chipping, and tarnishing.
The National Restaurant Association will be holding its 2013 NRA show May 18-21. Steelite International will be showcasing a broad array of Nambé signature pieces in Booth 7213 on Level 3 of the North Hall.
