Beachcombers to be a Division of Transpac
C&F Enterprises, a leading gift and home accessories company with over 40 years of global sourcing and manufacturing experience, has announced the purchase of Beachcombers Coastal Life. This marks the second wholesale acquisition for C&F Enterprises in the last 12 months, expanding on their market leadership in seasonal, gift, and home décor. Beachcombers Coastal Life will operate as a division of Transpac, under the leadership of President Laurie Gilner.
“Beachcombers Coastal Life is the ideal addition to the C&F family of brands, a company with exceptional channel focus and inspired designs. Beachcombers’ coastal gifts, home décor, apparel, accessories, and holiday offerings will be a perfect complement to Transpac’s expanding seasonal and home décor divisions. We are very much looking forward to working with the management team at Beachcombers, and believe their strengths, work ethic and company goals are aligned for a smooth integration into a division of Transpac,” said Gilner, Transpac’s president. She added, “This acquisition will provide unparalleled diversity in product selections to our retailers under the C&F brand umbrella.”
Beachcombers Coastal Life will continue to operate out of Fort Myers, Fla., under their current management and product development teams, with Transpac’s executive team providing direction and lending their vast industry experience to the BCL model.
