Bristol, Pa.-based Lenox Corp., a leading supplier of tabletop, giftware and home entertaining products, has acquired Columbus-based Oneida Consumer. The deal includes all existing Oneida Consumer-branded tabletop products including flatware, dinnerware and cutlery.

With its recent acquisition of Hampton Forge and now the Oneida tabletop brand, Lenox has a market leading portfolio of brands and innovative products with unparalleled consumer recognition across the spectrum of retail channels.

"All of these great brands have served as industry leaders in their respective categories, reaching a broad consumer base," said Bob Burbank, CEO of Lenox. "As one family, our products are sold to thousands of retailers including specialty and department stores, mass merchants, warehouse clubs and grocery stores across the U.S., Canada and international markets worldwide. This new combination of brands and array of products will create unprecedented growth opportunities within our existing customer base, and open new distribution world-wide. We are delighted to welcome Oneida and its array of flatware, dinnerware and cutlery products into the Lenox family."
