Focus Products Completes Purchase of Sure Fit
January 3, 2013,
CHICAGO-Focus Products Group has closed on its acquisition of slipcover manufacturer Sure Fit. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Founded in 1914, Sure Fit has long been a leader in the market for ready-made furniture slipcovers and coordinating accessories.. In recent years, the company has expanded into decorative pillows, dining-room chair covers, pet throws and the Patio Armor brand of outdoor furniture and grills.
Jeff Ackerberg, Focus Products' CEO, said the acquisition enlarges the company's reach in terms of home products, along with opening new selling avenues for Sure Fit. "Sure Fit's slipcover products are poised for growth as consumers look for compelling options for redecorating and protecting furniture," Ackerberg said.
