Regal Ware has acquired a premium coffee and tea press
manufacturer from Vancouver, British Columbia. ESPRO
will be a division of the company and continue its
operations in Vancouver.


The
founders of the newly acquired business, Bruce
Constantine and Chris McLean, will continue at ESPRO.
Constantine will lead the division as president and
McLean is expected to work as the senior product
development engineer.


ESPRO remains committed to elevating the coffee and tea
experience with advanced technology and premium quality.
Joining the Regal Ware family will allow us to move our
technology agenda forward a lot faster, Constantine
said in a news release.


Constantine and McLean started working on the company in
2002 with a sketch of their first product on the back of
a napkin. The goal was to improve the espresso-making
process.

In
2004, ESPRO was formed and the goal of the company was
to help people make good coffee. The company makes
several presses, pitchers and continues to make their
first product, the tamper.

A
tamper compresses coffee grounds in preparation for
water being filtered through it during the brewing
process.

We
are pleased to add the ESPRO line of premium coffee and
tea presses and accessories to our portfolio of brands,
enhancing our line of innovative kitchen products,
Regal Ware President and CEO Jeff Reigle said in a news
release. The addition of the ESPRO product line will
build upon our passion to strengthen families globally
creating memorable experiences and traditions around the
table.

Our
cookware is crafted to provide superior results in the
kitchen and make cooking more enjoyable. ESPRO will
complement this by bringing the best cup of coffee and
tea to every table.


Regal Ware is a Kewaskum-based company and continues
production in the state. Product lines under the company
include Saladmaster, Kitchen Fair, Lifetime, Classica
and Royal Queen.

In
June, the company expects its newest line, 1919
Cookware, to be on retail shelves.
