Wittur & Company of Libertyville IL the leading supplier of dinnerware, glassware, flatware, and related products to the Party Rental, Catering, and Event industries have entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with RSS Distributors of Manheim PA.
Michael Price President of Wittur & Company announced today that effective immediately all sales of its proprietary branded products, “Royal Sheffield” dinnerware, flatware, and glassware will be sold, shipped, and serviced by RSS Distributors.
Wittur & Company was started by Michael’s father Daniel Price along with his partner Mr. Heinz Wittur in 1958 importing tableware products from all over Europe. In the early years, the company’s markets were primarily targeted to the retail trade. Some of their customers included Crate & Barrel, Macy’s, Marshall Fields, and many others. In 1978 the company participated in its first ARA convention and hasn’t missed a year since. After the incredible success the company experienced selling to the Party Rental industry in the ’70s and 80’s. Michael, now the president of the company, refocused the company’s marketing direction into the Party Rental, Event, Catering, and Banquet sectors of the marketplace.
Late in 2019, Michael opened a dialogue with Josh Miller President of RSS Distributors to gauge their interest in distributing the product from Wittur & Company. Michael and Josh met several times in early 2020 at the ARA show and Catersource show to discuss the possibility of working together and for Josh to take over the responsibility of distributing and servicing the over 1000 customers of Wittur & Company. During a recent visit to RSS’s offices and distribution center, Michael and Josh shook hands and the new alliance was formed. Over the next 60 days, there will be a transition of sales and customer service from Wittur & Company to RSS with the goal of having everything in place before the end of the year.
Both Michael and Josh are very excited about the new partnership and are looking forward to a successful future together.
