Nick Moss, managing director of Ripmax, announced that UMC (the owners of Ripmax) had purchased Amerang on Monday the 15th July. Amerang’s stock is being consolidated centrally to Ripmax’s extensive Enfield warehouses where trade customer despatches will be made. The long-term plan is to merge the two companies and operate from Ripmax’s Enfield HQ, while retaining an Amerang sales office in Sussex.
This development will enable Ripmax to move into new areas of the market and build on Amerang’s strength in die cast, licensed film, TV and comic collectables, plastic kits, as well as its range of radio control items. Ripmax products will now be available to Amerang customers, and Amerang products to Ripmax customers, offering huge growth potential.
Ripmax aims to minimise the inevitable disruption this change brings to ensure that its customers favourite Amerang products are still available from local model, toy and comic book outlets.
