Change of ownership at HARDCASE


After 25 years at the helm, founder of HARDCASE International Limited Derrick Round has now retired with ownership transferring to long standing Sales Manager Dave Eyre.

Dave, who has been with the company for 14 years, and his wife Annie took over as official owners 1st September 2017.

“Negotiations have been taking place for some time now after Derrick notified his intentions to step down and retire. I knew this was a once in a lifetime opportunity and would regret if deciding not to pursue.  So, with the support of Annie, the decision was made.  It has been a dream for many years to run my own business and to achieve this goal in an industry I have a great passion for is quite surreal.  I’m sure there will be many challenges ahead but we have a strong global brand which I am extremely proud to be taking forward”.
