ROHL Invests in Perrin & Rowe

February 25, 2014

ROHL has acquired a 50 percent share in the Perrin & Rowe of Mayfair manufacturing in Great Britain. Perrin & Rowe will continue crafting and manufacturing their brassware for kitchens and baths exclusively in the U.K.

“The Perrin & Rowe portfolio of products is core to the ROHL portfolio,” said Lou Rohl, CEO and managing partner, ROHL. “The opportunity to invest in the business, capitalizing on an improving global market and keeping the tenets of the Perrin & Rowe manufacturing processes intact and solidly placed in the U.K., is critical to our strategy to deliver authentically crafted, luxury products for kitchens, baths and luxury resorts to the U.S. market. We are pleased to have a stake in assuring the quality and provenance of this venerable brand for some time to come.”

In 1996, ROHL collaborated with the company Avilion Ltd. to create a new line of kitchen and bath faucets. This collection, Perrin & Rowe of Mayfair London, has become one of the leading brands marketed by ROHL in the U.S. The founding active U.K. partners were Bob Perrin and Greg Rowe, and in 2011, Steve Cole, managing director, acquired the majority of the company. The ROHL investment will allow Cole and his team to carry on their focus on the core competencies of manufacturing in Great Britain, as well as developing the Perrin & Rowe brand globally. ROHL and Perrin & Rowe are independently operated, and Steve Cole will continue to manage the Perrin & Rowe enterprise.

“We are honored that ROHL thought enough of our capabilities to invest in our future,” said Cole. “This partnership will allow us to continue to deliver the outstanding examples of design excellence for which we have become known, continue to invest in the business and as one of the few remaining brassware manufacturers in Great Britain, continue our commitment to manufacturing in the U.K.”
