PTS America Acquires Sango
October 19, 2017,
NEW YORK—Tabletop company PTS America has acquired dinnerware manufacturer Sango for an undisclosed sum.
Sango is featured front and center in PTS’ New York showroom.
PTS will manufacture, market and sell Sango worldwide, with the exception of Japan, transfer its inventory to the PTS warehouse in Cerritos, Calif., and continue to work with the Chinese factory where Sango is produced, according to PTS Vice President David Lee. Sango currently sells about five dinnerware patterns to Bed Bath & Beyond and is otherwise anchored by its online business, he said. “We don’t anticipate any large gaps in servicing Sango customers,” he said.
The acquisition of Sango, which is known for its ceramic dinnerware sets, “gives PTS an entrée to the casual entertaining sector that we had not been in previously,” Lee said. It also allows PTS to capitalize on some of Sango’s more advanced manufacturing techniques, such as its expertise in reactive glazes, he added.
