SHARPE’S OF ABERDEEN JOINT PRESS RELEASE 31st March 2022
MAG NI Holdings Ltd are pleased to announce the acquisition of the assets of Clan Nets Ltd t/a Sharpe’s of Aberdeen Ltd.
The business will be re-located to their base in Northern Ireland where the manufacturing of Sharpe’s products will continue. The new Sharpe’s company directors Mark & Aaron Gamble are pleased to continue carrying the baton of this strong UK Heritage brand.
Mark & Aaron had a good relationship with Stuart Wright the previous owner and had in fact spoken to Stuart about a possible purchase of the company. Then with the sad news of Stuart’s passing in December 2020, the future for the brand became uncertain for a time until a deal with Mark and Aaron was finalised. Mark Gamble said “I would like to thank the current owner Ruth for her cooperation and assistance during the difficult past year or two. I hope that the business moving on to new hands will allow her to focus on what is the next chapter of her life now.”
Ruth Wright has issued a statement saying;
Finally, no doubt after much speculation, I’m sure I am delighted to announce we are handing over the reins of Sharpe’s into the capable hands of Mark and Aaron Gamble.
I would like to take this opportunity to give my heartfelt thanks to our stalwarts, Don and Jenny who kept my company running, not only during Stuart’s illness, but since his passing, without whom there would have been no Sharpe’s to hand over.
I would also extend thanks to our loyal customer base who I hope will continue to support Dennett Outdoor during the transition.
Sharpe’s of Aberdeen will join Dennett Outdoor as part of the MAG NI Holdings portfolio. Both companies will continue to be run as a separate entities. However, Dennett Outdoor will now be the exclusive distributor to the trade of Sharpe’s products in the UK and Ireland. Aaron commented “Our plan is to increase manufacturing capacity to fulfil existing and future demand. We are excited by the prospect of building the Sharpe’s brand back to where it belongs, while simultaneously developing new game fishing products for the future”.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE
