Browne & Co. Consolidates Brands

MARKHAM, Ontario-Browne & Co. announced that, after many years of cooperation with partners Emile Henry, Rosle and Mauviel, Browne USA is consolidating logistics and sales management for all retail activity of its corporately owned brands Cuisipro, Duncan Kitchen Grips, Berard and Basics.

Management and logistics will be moving from New Castle, Del., to its corporate facilities in Union, N.J., and Memphis, Tenn.

"Both of these existing locations will be shared facilities with Browne & Co.'s Food Service division Browne-Halco, and will represent a more streamlined approach to our management of the business and ability to serve customer needs," the company said in a press release.

Peter Braley, chief operating officer of the Retail Division, will lead the new organization. Deb Flynn will take on the responsibility of national sales manager for all the above retail brands and will continue to report to Braley.

This change will be effective Jan. 1, 2011.
