Litmus Furniture has been appointed as Belgian furniture manufacturer Recor’s principal agency for England, Wales and Ireland.
Established in 1949, Recor is known in the UK for its oak-framed sofa collections, but more recently has expanded its design and production capabilities into a wider range of contemporary living and dining cabinet furniture and upholstery.
Both will be sold by Litmus, which also distributes Wiemann bedroom furniture in the UK.
Litmus MD Simon Hewitt says: “We think we have found another product range that will be a real success in the UK market. Recor not only has the right capability and scale of operations to support sales growth here but also a real appetite for developing its business in the UK.
Recor's export manager Vincent Callot adds: ”In the past the UK was a significant export market for Recor and we’re keen to see it become so again now that we have so much more to offer in terms of products. Litmus, with its well-established and highly capable and motivated sales team across England, Wales and Ireland is the perfect fit to help us achieve those ambitions.”
The new relationship has commenced with a showvan tour across all territories, which has already been in the South-east, Home Counties and East Anglia. It will be in the South-west from 21st-25th October, Ireland from 28th October until 8th November, the north of England on 11-15th November and The Midlands from 18th-22nd November.
