Condor Group acquires Apollo Southern’s watchstraps and accessories stock
July 17, 2013 – Condor Group acquires Apollo Southern’s watchstraps and accessories stock. London-based business also announces that it is an official distributor of Hagerty Jewellery Cleaners
Following years of steady growth Condor Group has recently undergone a series of important developments that consolidate its position as one of the UK’s most successful watch, watchstrap and accessories suppliers.
On June 30 the London-based company acquired stock of Apollo Southerns, the watchstraps and accessories division of Time Products. Apollo retains its trading name but has already contacted customers to inform them that its watchstrap and accessories business has closed.
Retailers wishing to purchase any of the remaining Apollo stock have been invited to go directly to Condor Group for the fulfilment of their requirements.
The director of Condor Group, Indira Bhoja comments: “We thought it was worth our while to acquire the Apollo stock because we already trade in those products. It has given us the opportunity to work with new customers and open talks with new suppliers. Every day we are getting more and more inquiries and requests to supply either Apollo watchstraps or our own-brand Condor watchstraps, it’s a very good time for our business with a lot of growth to come in the near future.”
The Apollo stock includes a wide range of tools, findings and Sony batteries along with the replacement watchstraps and bracelets.
Bhoja adds: “We are particularly pleased to now have distribution of Sony batteries as it’s such an excellent, well-known brand that we’re proud to be associated with.
In addition to this stock acquisition Condor Group is also delighted to announce that it has become an official distributor for Hagerty Jewellery Cleaners, one of the best jewellery cleaning brands on the market.
Condor Group currently trades with over 2,500 retail outlets throughout the UK and has distribution across 40 countries, from Iceland, New Zealand, the Middle East and Indonesia, to Mexico, Zambia, Canada and the rest of Europe. Its watch brands include Royal London, Cannibal and TimeCo.
