Equistone-backed Gala Kerzen buys Ramesh Flowers - PE Hub (blog)Wednesday, March 14, 2018
Tuticorin (India) by Mahendra Raj Singhwi, who continues to run the company today. Ramesh Flowers employs a total of c.3,000 workers in its production sites in India and in Temecula (California, USA), which are all BSCI-, SMEPA- and SEDEX- certified. Through its longstanding wholesale partners, the company supplies international retail chains in its target markets in Europe and the USA, with the American market alone accounting for more than 43% of Ramesh Flowers’ exports. The acquisition will open up new opportunities for GALA Kerzen in both adjacent segments and in new target markets.Dirk Langhammer, Managing Director of the GALA Kerzen, said, “Equistone provided GALA Kerzen with optimal support as part of the succession plan two years ago. Since then, we have focused primarily on generating new growth, which we have done successfully in a consolidating market. Now our aim is to continue our global growth as a European candle manufacturer. Our starting position is strong: nine out of ten candles sold in the EU are manufactured in Europe. It is therefore all the more important that we do not rest on our laurels and that we look to the future. With Equistone as a partner, GALA Kerzen can realise strategic opportunities and chances for growth – such as this acquisition of a majority stake in Ramesh Flowers.”Dirk Schekerka, Country Head of Equistone in the DACH region, said, “The acquisition of Ramesh Flowers will create a number of growth opportunities for GALA Kerzen, expanding the company’s range of products into the adjacent segment of home fragrances and decorative products. This enhanced product range will be sold to GALA Kerzen’s existing and established retail partners. Additionally, the presence of Ramesh Flowers in the USA will give GALA Kerzen a foothold in markets outside Europe, while both the UK and the DACH region represent new potential target markets for Ramesh Flowers’ products in Europe. Furthermore, access to Ramesh Flowers’ existing manufacturing sites will drive efficiencies in production and enable GALA Kerzen to profitably distribute smaller batches of products.” Do you want exclusive news and analysis about private equity deals, fundraising, top-quartile managers and more?

Woman Selling Flowers at Perris High School Graduation Forcefully Arrested (VIDEO) - 24/7 Headline NewsTuesday, July 18, 2017
Mendez-Modrano was clearly upset, at some point urinating on herself during the struggle. She was medically cleared and was subsequently booked into the Southwest Detention Center in the City of Temecula.The identity of Mendez-Medrano was not known until she was fingerprinted for jail booking. The video has circulated through social media, where the woman screamed out in Spanish that she was only trying to make a honest living.She also said that they were hurting her. Authorities said that the video does not show the full scope of the incident. “Unfortunately, the video did not capture the other vendors cooperating with the citation process, nor did it capture our officer’s repeated efforts to convince Ms. Mendez-Medrano to do the same,” Riverside County Sheriff’s Officials said. “As with most police events, the short, publicly produced video does not have the full context or content of the incident seen on the video. Additionally, rarely in police use of force situations is there agreement from all parties involved as to the appropriateness, efficacy or necessity of its use.”people out here just tryna make an honest living and of course police gotta be bitches about it smfh #fuck12pic.twitter.com/JV7pY3y2PQ— tweet (@kill_Lem_all) June 8, 2017For late-breaking news, follow 24/7 Headline News on our Los Angeles County Facebook group, Riverside County Facebook group, Coachella Valley News group, US News group, Victor Valley/Inland Empire Facebook group.

A Career in Bloom - San Antonio MagazineTuesday, September 10, 2019
Mandy the Mantle Girl,” as she is known at the White House (yes, that White House), has a floral career that took root when she was a girl growing up in College Station. A third-generation florist, she spent her youth helping out at her grandmother’s floral shop, Nita’s Flowers.“Our entire lives were based around the shop and doing parties and events,” she recalls, adding that Nita’s is still going strong today. “Christmas was especially big for us.”Also “big” was a recurring job providing fresh flowers to President George H.W. and Barbara Bush whenever they stayed at their College Station apartment. That led Barkley to start dreaming of taking her floral talents to even bigger presidential quarters.“I submitted an application and was selected as a volunteer five years ago, and they’ve been bringing me back ever since,” says the mother of three who moved to San Antonio seven years ago and now serves on the White House’s executive decorating team.Still, while flowers are Barkley’s passion, she says that she’s taken a more modern approach to the business. The choice has allowed the freelance florist to create stunning seasonal displays for the exterior of Feliz Modern and other local businesses and also to craft masterpieces for private residences, large parties and small gatherings. Her work often incorporates flowers plus fun accents, such as piñatas, pinwheels, Italian crepe paper flowers, ornaments at Christmas and “crafty” items like ribbon chandeliers. “I actually... https://www.sanantoniomag.com/September-2019/A-Career-in-Bloom/
Miss Manners: Floral runaround could have been avoided - The Washington PostTuesday, September 10, 2019
I sent her a photo and video of the bouquet and card so that they could be temporarily enjoyed, at least visually.I was a bit stunned to get a call from her asking me to please call the florist, and ask if the flowers could be picked up and a new bouquet delivered upon her return, but I said “Of course.” So I called the local florist and they said they’d see what they could do.Apparently the florist then called their client, the sender, to ask if they’d like to pay to send a second bouquet. Somebody bears the cost of a second bouquet.It seems to me that a gracious person would have said, “Oh, those are beautiful; would someone in our office like to take them home and enjoy them?” Was her request a symptom of over-entitlement?Alive as Miss Manners is to the rudeness of others, she cannot help noticing that there would be less rudeness if we did not go around expecting to find it. What your boss did was unexpected, but not rude.What happened next created the mess, much like the actor who drops a prop that causes another actor to trip and fall into the lap of the gentleman in the front row.Your boss’s hope that the flower shop would reschedule the delivery after it had occurred was absurdly optimistic. But she is the boss. Your call to the flower shop should have been: “My apologies. I realize this is unusual, but my boss is out ... https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/advice/miss-manners-floral-runaround-could-have-been-avoided/2019/08/20/a9d8ab7e-bd0f-11e9-a5c6-1e74f7ec4a93_story.html
