Robely Trading celebrates 50th anniversary
August 15, 2013,
Kitchen and bath accessories manufacturer Robely Trading is celebrating the company's 50th anniversary this year.
To mark the occasion, the Concord, Ontario-based company will host an anniversary celebration at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 7W 34th Street, Suite 423, during the New York Home Fashions Market.
The company began in 1963 as a Canadian branch of U.K.-based Sadler, which produced fine bone China products and specialized in teapots. Brothers Robert and Ely Gabay acquired the company, buying the rights to Sadler's brand names and Canadian inventory.
The company changed its name to Robely Sadler in 1987. Seven years later, the Gabay brothers re-established the company as Robely Trading, Inc. Over time, Robely diversified its product line to include kitchenware, glassware and bath products.
According to a company press release, "Now, Robely has surfaced as one of the leading sources in home décor. Their products are easily identifiable through their sleek concepts and decorative yet functional utility."
