Accapi Group are celebrating 10 years in business by breaking the £60m in sales.
As we reach this milestone, it gives us the chance to not only celebrate, but to reflect on how far we have come. The Group, which was founded by serial entrepreneur George Heydon in 2009, is the exclusive European distributor for performance dog gear brand, Ruffwear®.
Accapi established itself as a leader in the performance market right from the beginning, working with premium brands to build distribution across Europe. This passion and expertise in the outdoor performance market paved the way to partner with performance dog gear brand, Ruffwear, a brand whose strong values and commitment to quality completely aligns with Accapi’s outlook. Ruffwear’s focus on creating products that inspire and enhance outdoor adventures with canine companions has created the adventure category in the pet world, a category where Ruffwear continues to lead the market with a uniquely dogcentric approach to design.
We have achieved phenomenal success with Ruffwear over the course of our 9-year partnership, forging a close relationship to the Oregan based brand which is almost unheard of in the distribution world. From gaining UK distribution in 2010, to appointment as Ruffwear’s exclusive distribution partner across 31 European countries, we are proud to represent this market leading brand and see huge potential for future growth.
Chairman of Accapi Group, George Heydon said:
“This is a fantastic milestone for Accapi, a real credit to the team, and of course to the incredible quality and performance of the products we distribute. Ruffwear is a brilliant brand that is gaining real traction in the European market, where the demand for premium pet products shows no signs of slowing. We are excited to capitalise on the strong platform that we have built as we continue to grow the brand together.”
