“We are extremely excited about the acquisition of such an innovative brand – recognized for its originality, functionality and design,” says Ross Brownlee, chief executive officer of Hilco Vision. “I am confident that together with designer Paul Stables, we can enable it to reach its full potential internationally as we leverage our increasingly global footprint.”
The creator of smart optical solutions since 1956, the move follows acquisitions by Hilco Vision in Germany in 2015 and most recently in the Benelux region as part of a concerted effort by the company to deliver on its promise to be a global partner to its global customers.
“I am delighted to be part of Hilco Vision and continue to build this dynamic brand’s distribution internationally,” says Paul Stables, founder and designer of Jonathan Paul Eyewear, who will be staying on with Hilco Vision. “The Fitovers category is growing fast and we are well placed to lead that growth leveraging Hilco’s distribution reach and consistently high quality standards.”
