Butterfly Elite to close UK subsidiary

Published: 11 June 2007
Butterfly Elite, suppliers of stainless steel housewares, is in discussions whether to close its UK subsidiary in Eastbourne.
A spokesperson for the company said servicing independents in the UK was not "feasible" after the combined effect of steel price rises and larger production runs put pressure on overheads.

Butterfly Elite started importing stainless steel housewares from India in 1992. It had immediate success supplying independent cookshops, department stores, variety stores and wholesalers.

It currently offers a mid-market product range to high-end retailers and general hardware stores.

I am so sorry to hear that UK is going to close
Butterfly stainless steel, we did have so wonderful
stuff specially at Christmas time from you company.
My first tin was a 7\2 inches in sand color and a
red one 2' deep and the transparent lid 1' metal
never seen again, so bad. Buena Suerte!
