The company has given careful consideration to the appointment following the retirement of its Irish agent, Bryan Walker, in the summer.
Orchard Toys has announced the appointment of Banaghan & Co as its exclusive distributor for Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland from January 1st 2021.
Simon Prest, sales director at Orchard Toys, commented: “Bryan did a fantastic job for Orchard Toys over many years and we wanted to ensure that we considered all options before making an appointment, so that our Irish customers continue to receive the best possible availability and service, particularly given the complications that Brexit will create. We are thrilled to have now entered into a partnership with Banaghans, as the company shares so many of our own values.”
Colm Banaghan (pictured above) added: “We look forward to working with such a well-known and respected brand in the retail trade, and a company with a track record of delivering on service and quality. We will safeguard the high profile of this range in Ireland and ensure maximum availability of product going forward.”
