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?

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.
