Fox Run Acquires Outset
November 22, 2010,
IVYLAND, Penn.-Housewares company Fox Run has agreed to acquire Outset, a grilling and entertaining accessories company, for an undisclosed amount.
"This is a great opportunity for Fox Run to add a few key components to our brand strategy -- products we do not offer today, powerful high profile brands, and two people in Jeff Norling and Curt Anderson who have demonstrated a proven ability to recognize opportunity, develop unique products and execute placement at a high level," said Sean Leonard, chief executive officer, Fox Run Brands.
"Our approach at Outset has always been focused on product and service," said Norling, who co-founded the company along with Anderson. "While we pride ourselves on these core values, we recognize our ability to continually improve in that regard. Fox Run and Outset complement one another in such ways that will allow us to focus more narrowly on bringing great products to market while improving service to our customers at all levels."
