The United Kingdom-based appliance maker Aga Foodservice Group has accelerated its North American consumer expansion plans with the purchase of the Cambridge, Ontario-based premium cooker and refrigerator manufacturer, Heartland Appliances.
Aga produces range cookers and refrigerators for the residential, commercial and bakery markets. Its consumer brands include Aga, Marvel Industries, Northland Kitchen Appliances, Rayburn, La Cornue, Rangemaster, Fired Earth, Grange, and Domain.
According to Aga, Heartland cookers and stoves have established niche positions in Canada and the U.S. and seamlessly fit with the look and market position of other Group appliance brands, including Aga Ranges, Inc., Marvel Industries and Northland Kitchen Appliances.
"We are thrilled to welcome Heartland Appliance to the Aga Foodservice Group family," said Iain J. Whyte, president of Aga Foodservice Inc. "We have a keen interest in expanding our formidable international premium appliance position here in North America, and joining forces with Heartland will only accelerate our successes."
Heartland's Managing Director Brad Michael said, "With the Aga Group's product range available to us, we can build on Heartlands strength to be Canada's major premium appliance operation. It's a great opportunity for the Heartland Team."
